Lack of foster families leads to temporary hotel housing for few children
Placeholder Image
In the first three months of 2015, more than a handful of Hall County foster care kids with the Division of Family and Children Services spent an average of two nights in a hotel. “We had a total of eight children having to be in a hotel during that time,” said Hall-Dawson DFCS Director Holly Campolong. The hotel stays are symbolic for the foster care problems that plague DFCS and area children: at times, they have nowhere else to go.
