It has been great fun coming on-board with ICM after over 30 years with other agencies.  ICM is a dynamic and supportive place to work.

With experience as a social worker in adoptions, as well as 12 years as a foster parent myself, I felt this was a good fit.

We started early in 2017 by writing a grant that would enable us to set up a Specialized Foster Care program to serve children with developmental disabilities.  We were awarded the contract in July.

There has been interest and we are now training one family that will be ready to work shortly after the first of the year.  We have other families that are in the process of becoming eligible for training.

If you are interested in talking about foster care with ICM, please call me, Lacy Orsak at the Merrill office-501-228-0063 or my cell-501-529-7260. I look forward to hearing from you!
