October Awareness

Katrina and Melvin Jones became therapeutic foster parents with Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health New Jersey in 2008. Since that time, they have fostered 25 children, including three currently. In 2012, they adopted their first foster child, Dennis, and then, in 2019, they adopted three other children, all brothers, Lavion, Demetrius and Dayshawn.

“The decision to foster, and then, adopt, was easy,” Katrina said. “My husband had always worked with children, and I was raised in a large family. My mother took care of my cousins, and my grandmother was the ‘grandmother’ of the neighborhood. We opened our hearts and home to children in the community.”
