The Foster Care Program provides temporary care for children who are unable to live with their birth families or guardians, while allowing youth to live in a family setting, attend public school, and be active members of the community. Foster Parents work with a team of families, social workers, and other professionals, to help prepare the child to return to his/her birth family, or to be adopted.
Extensive training is offered to all Foster Parents. In addition, 24‐hour on‐call service and crisis response provides support for the needs of the entire family.
