Permanency can be achieved in three ways: 1) By strengthening families in crisis so that they can remain together; 2) By counseling separated children and their biological parents to help them reunify or; 3) By connecting children with loving foster-adoptive families who go on to permanently adopt them as their own. -Interview with Emily Peters from Five Acres -If you know of a local business, or local happening that would like to be featured please reach out to us! firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you to Simonsen Sounds for engineering, producing and creating custom music for our podcast.
