Meet Chad and Berry

Chad became a single foster parent more than six years ago. Over the last six years he has cared for 49 children and youth, many of whom were sibling groups and teens who needed a safe place to land for a few days, or sometimes longer. Last year Chad’s partner Berry moved in and they now foster as a team. Chad and Berry currently have two infants and two teens in their home. Although they hope to adopt, they are also very supportive of reunification because they know kids want to return home. Chad and Berry find working with teens while being positive role models in their lives is very rewarding and continue to stay in touch with many of the youth who have been in their home.
