NOW: Fmr. Colts coach pushes for more foster parents

INDIANAPOLIS - Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy is encouraging more people in Indiana to become foster parents.

Right now, there are more than 15,000 kids in the Hoosier state who need homes.

Dungy returned to Lucas Oil Stadium on Thursday to help raise awareness about the need.

He and his wife have 10 kids, seven of them adopted, and they also open their home to foster kids in need.

"It's been awesome but it started with us getting the message about the need," he said. "We were like probably so many people, just cruising along, not knowing there was a need. And that's what our mission is."

Dungy was joined by Gov. Eric Holcomb and the Department of Child Services to kick off their new campaign to call for more foster parents.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a foster parent, call 1-833-4-I-N-KIDS.
