It takes an uncommon amount of love to take a shocked, frightened child into your heart during this troubled time. The Department of Social Development's "Parents For a While" program consists of people: your neighbors, colleagues, friends. "Parents Fora While" are mature persons who respond to the challenge of giving love, understanding, and security to troubled adolescents who need it desperately. They accept and love children who have not yet learned to love. To these people, helping a young life in crisis is more important than considerations of physical disability, teen-age disorientation, or race. Interested?
