White’s Residential & Family Services has received a grant from the Crown Point Community Foundation in support of its foster care outreach in Lake County.
“We are so happy to join with the Crown Point Community Foundation,” said Kevin Trotter, Vice President of Advancement for White’s. “The Foundation’s support of our “Ensuring a Home for Every Child in Need” initiative will empower our Crown Point office of Family Services to recruit, train, and support foster homes in the communities of South Lake County. This will result in more available placements for children when they need it most.”
White’s was founded in 1850 in Wabash, Indiana, caring for children and adolescents in need. Foster care services were added in 1985, with Crown Point’s office opening in 1989. White’s opened 42 new homes statewide in 2018, serving 263 children. Another 44 homes are in process of licensure at this time, four in the Crown Point area.
The Crown Point Community Foundation exists to enrich the lives of its citizens living in South Lake County.
