New PSA Highlights Famous Foster Children

The following public service announcement is airing this Black History Month on local radio stations to encourage area residents to become foster parents.

What do Halle Berry, Malcolm X and Eddie Murphy have in common?
All of these famous African Americans were once in foster care.
Imagine if no one opened their hearts & homes to them.
This Black History Month, consider giving back to your community.  Become a foster parent.
The DC metropolitan region has over four thousand children in foster care, but only about two thousand foster homes.
Each day more children enter the system needing a temporary safe haven.
Help us, help the children.  Become a foster parent.
Contact your local department of social services or visit www.mwcog.org.
