A local foster mother is opening her door to children anytime day or night and creating the resources for others to do the same. Now that school is out and we are expanding our All Stars to people making a huge impact in our community and Melissa Covell really stood out. A foster parent herself, Melissa has dedicated her life to helping any foster child or foster family in need. “Being available 24/7, that’s something you don’t typically get,” Kelli Dobner of Judson Center said.
Due to the nature of the work we do, Judson Center upholds the privacy of the children, adults and families we serve. Therefore, photos and names may be changed to protect identity.
