Ivory Elkins

  I have been a foster parent for over 20 years; most of these years have been with Dockside services, which I believe is a great agency. Over the years, I have met some of the best case managers, and therapist who loves working with the children as much as I do.  To hear a mom or dad say “thank you” for saving my family is one of the many rewards.
