Ms. Valerie Gibbs was certified as a foster parent with CMCS on May 24th, 2001 and has cared for over 40 children in that time. Ms. Gibbs was recognized for her dedication and support of our youth in foster care at the National Foster Care Month Celebration held on May 19th at Battery Gardens in New York City. Ms. Gibbs has provided care for approximately 40 children over the years. Congratulations and thank you for your dedication and the care you provided to these children.
Also in attendance was Keith Robinson of our Treatment Family Foster Care division.
As told by Julie Farber of ACS, “We had the privilege to honor foster parents from every agency who have opened their homes to babies, toddlers, youngsters, teenagers, and siblings groups.”
Over 250 foster parents, foster care agency staff, ACS staff and other partners gathered to honor and celebrate the important work of foster parents - caring for children, helping families reunify and, when that can’t happen, providing permanent homes for children.
Congratulations to Ms. Gibbs, Keith Robinson and to our entire staff in the family treatment family foster care programs.
