The Children’s Study Home to host Recruitment Event and L.E.A.F (Foster Care) Open House

 Springfield, MA (September 2, 2021) – The Children’s Study Home will be hosting a recruitment event while welcoming people to learn more about its Foster Care program on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. This event will be hosted at our Foster Care program’s new home, the L.E.A.F Welcome Center, 60 Sherman Street in Springfield, from 10am to 2pm. This event will be an open event for the community. We will have music, giveaways, raffles, food, and more. 

“This event is a way to engage with our community in multiple ways,” explained Yamilca Nogue, Director of Community Relations & Development. “People will be able to learn more about all the exciting things happening at The Children’s Study Home, whether it’s information about a job opening, a volunteer opportunity, CSH programs, or how to apply to become a foster parent”. 

“Not only is this an important event, because foster homes are so critical and scarce, but its an exciting opportunity to introduce the new home of the foster care program,” explained William Davila, Executive Director/CEO. “L.E.A.F stands for Learning to Embrace Alternative Families, an important lens through which we view this work and how we recruit, train, and support foster families.” 

The Children’s Study Home is currently hiring for various positions. In addition to competitive pay, benefits, and a sign on bonus, The Children’s Study Home offers growing opportunities, educational stipend, inclusion and diversity, and a positive culture workplace. For more information visit
