YELLOW SPRINGS — In celebration of National Adoption Month, Greene County Children Services will host a special free screening of The Lego Batman Movie 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Little Art Theatre, 247 Xenia Avenue.
Anyone interested in learning more about adoption is encouraged to attend, as a variety of information will be available. Children Services foster and adoption caseworkers will be on hand to answer questions, and a local adoptive family will give a brief, informal presentation before the movie.
Children of all ages are welcome to attend the PG-rated movie with their parents or other adult guardian. Everyone, adults and children, will be admitted for free.
“We believe all children need and deserve permanent families, no matter how young or old they are,” said Beth Rubin, Director of Greene County Department of Job and Family Services. “We especially need people who are interested in adopting older children, including teens, as well as those interested in adopting siblings.”
Greene County Children Services is a division of the Greene County Department of Job and Family Services and provides for the care, protection and placement of abused, neglected and dependent children in Greene County. The agency engages in a wide spectrum of protective activities including the assessment of thousands of child abuse and neglect reports received each year. It also provides preventive services to children in their own homes as well as providing temporary and permanent child placement through foster care, adoption, and independent living programs.
