Volunteers sought to serve as host homes

Youth Connections is looking for volunteers to be host homes in Johnson and Morgan counties. Host homes are asked to open up their home to a youth in need for up to 21 days, until they can be reunited with their family or moved to a permanent location.

To become a host home, participants must pass a background check which includes fingerprints, sexual offender registry and driving record. A home inspection is also required.

For more information or to apply, contact Dawn LaPlante at 317-738-3273, ext. 104, or dawn@youthconnections.org.

Donations can be made to the program at youthconnections.org.
