Last year, Carla Trier said, the Sheridan Foster Parent Exchange provided over 1,500 services.
Trier is the founder and executive director of the Exchange, and on Friday, she will be recognized as the 2021 Champion for Children during the Sheridan County Light of Hope Celebration.
An annual event of Compass Center for Families, the celebration this year will be a Watch Party starting at noon on Facebook. In a recent interview with Sheridan Media,
Trier said the Foster Parent Exchange has received amazing community support.
The Foster Parent Exchange is a Christian organization that provides needed resources and supplies to foster, adoptive and kinship parents and children. Trier started the Exchange about eight years ago.
Compass Center for Families started as the Sheridan County CASA – an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocates – in 1991 and still operates the CASA program. But other programs have been added through the years.
Compass has traditionally held a Light of Hope breakfast celebration but moved to a virtual event on Facebook this year because of COVID-19.
