Looking for foster parents

The Itasca County Health and Human Services is looking for foster homes for children, particularly in the Grand Rapids area, and will host an orientation for prospective foster parents.

Some kids need temporary housing while they and their families work out problems.

The two-part orientation at the Itasca Resource Center takes place 6-9 p.m. Jan. 3 in Room 157 and 7-8 p.m. Jan. 15 in Room 122.

The Itasca Resource Center is located at 1209 S.E. Second Ave. in Grand Rapids.
