Did you know that June was National Reunification Month? In 2022, 63% of our discharged youth in Boys Town Foster Family Services reunified with a family member. Reunification remains our number one priority.
Meet Chad and Claire Conrad and family! As first-time Boys Town foster parents, ten-year-old Riley was their first foster child. The Conrads partnered with Riley's mom Kristen, from day one. They supported each other, provided shared parenting and worked towards the same goal of being amazing parents to Riley. After 16 months, Riley reunified with Kristen. The Conrad family celebrated by going out to eat for the last time as a foster family. Both families remain in contact, live near each other and remain in a connected partnership. Riley and her mom are excelling! This is why we do what we do.
