OPERATING PROJECTS SINCE MARCH 2000!
FOSTER PARENT VIRTUAL GROOMING PROJECT
RBCF is proud to announce our upcoming Foster/Adoptive Parent Virtual Grooming Project. During the next twelve months, RBCF will provide group and one-on-one virtual haircare training session for Anne Arundel County foster/adoptive parents. This project was created when we assessed that 40% of Anne Arundel County foster/adoptive parents lacked the proper grooming knowledge and skill when providing hair care for their foster children. We also discovered that 32% of children residing in foster care live in homes with parents of different races/ethnicities, which often contributes to the parents’ lack of knowledge and skill. Therefore, the goal of this project is to increase the grooming knowledge and skill of Anne Arundel County foster/adoptive parents concerning children of all races and ethnicities.
