On August 14th at 7pm, PFLAG Niceville welcomes April Hight of Families First to discuss Florida foster care and how the LBGTQIA+ community can help.


All children need a safe, stable, secure environment to grow and learn. In Northwest Florida, nearly 850 children in foster care need such a place to feel cared for and protected. They are victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect. The children have been removed from their homes to help ensure their safety. The children range in age from newborns to 17 years old, either gender, LBGQTIA+ and all races.


Foster parenting is both challenging and rewarding. Foster parents are asked to open their hearts and homes to children from the community and enable them to become family members. Then at the right time, foster parents help the children transition back into their own homes or into an adoptive home. The impact that foster parents have on children can make the difference in the success of that child's life.
