  Original Published: 8/14/2013 Richland County Children Services has been awarded a $28,500 Wendy's Wonderful Kids grant from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The money will pay for a part-time recruiter the agency wants to hire, to work with adoptive families on providing permanent homes for hard-to-place children. Placement Programs Supervisor Lori Feeney says those would be children with several siblings or older teenagers. Children Services has fifteen children available for adoption, with four not yet having an identified home. Feeney says adoptive parents can be single or married couples, lives in homes or apartments, and there are no income requirements other than their ability to support themselves and a child. The agency hopes to fill the recruiter position within two weeks. For more information about the job, go the Children Services website at www.richlandcountychildrenservices.org.
