Meth is topic of forum

Methamphetamine use and its effects on a community are the subject of a program scheduled for 6 p.m. April 14 at the YWCA, 225 S.W. 12th. The presenter will be Terry Scott, chief of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Tribal Police.

The program is sponsored by The Farm Inc., a child welfare and behavioral health organization with 23 offices statewide.

The meeting is open to the public. Current foster families who attend will receive continuing education credits to maintain their licensing. Child care will be provided, and a prize drawing will be held.

For those interested, members of The Farm Inc. staff will be available before and after the meeting to talk about foster care.
