To provide assistance with foster children by providing a positive, caring environment for children that have just been brought into State Custody. To support the Cobb County DFCS Staff and the Cobb County Foster Parents during intake, court proceedings and training activities of Foster Parents.
The Nanny/Manny Brigade is a group of volunteers who are willing to be a positive influence on children that are coming into Cobb County Dept of Family and Children Sersvices custody. When a child is taken into State Custody, it can be terrifying. Most of the time, they must wait at the DFCS office until they are placed with a foster home. Our volunteers supervise and befriend children for a morning or afternoon on that critical day. Our volunteers support the DFCS staff by caring for children that are waiting in the office for a foster home placement, visitation with their parents and during family meetings conducted at the DFCS office.
