FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Phoenix Institute hopes to recruit more foster and adoptive parents in the Fort Wayne area.

The Phoenix Institute President Sue Puff says the need for more foster parents has gone up because of the opioid and drug crisis.

The organization is hosting a private viewing of the movie "Instant Family" Saturday at 2 p.m. for current and prospective foster parents and child welfare workers.


The movie is about a couple who takes in three children and learns the ropes of instant parenthood.

"It just shows how it needs to happen. It was beautiful and like I mentioned the writer and producer is a foster and adoptive parent too and his writing was really on target," said Puff.

There are 15 tickets for the event left. To get a ticket, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/private-viewing-of-instant-family-tickets-52004247103
