Foster Care Appreciation

In the month of the June the Sioux Falls and Rapid City Foster Care Programs each spent an afternoon showing their appreciation for current and past foster parents and foster care youth. 

During the two afternoons foster parents and foster care youth enjoyed a BBQ style meal.  The children and adults enjoyed the nice weather and outdoor activities including sidewalk chalk, blowing bubbles, swinging, a slide, throwing a football around, and the older youth enjoyed playing basketball.  Quality time was spent furthering our relationships with foster parents and foster youth, watching the children play and interact, and of course, the FOOD!!! 

Staff enjoyed seeing the positive effects and changes in the youth.  It was inspiring to see the foster youth laugh and simply enjoy their time with little to no cares in the world. The foster care program appreciated all the help, knowledge, and feedback received by our foster families as well – without our LSS foster families, our foster care program just wouldn’t be the same. 

LSS is truly blessed by each and every one of our foster families as they each bring something special to our team. We appreciate the work and dedication our foster parents have shown through out the years to the children in our care!!
