Foster Care

Foster Care provides temporary homes for children and adolescents who have been removed from their parents due to abuse or neglect. Services are given to the children, their natural parents and current foster parents. The goal is to help all foster children find permanency in their lives, either through being unified with their parents or, if that isn’t possible, through adoption or guardianship with loving, capable caretakers or a transition to independent living.

1) Traditional Foster Care

This program provides a temporary family home for children and adolescents who have been removed from their parents due to abuse or neglect. Services are given to the children, their natural parents and their current foster parents. Regular visitation between children, their siblings and their parents is ensured. The goal is to help all of the children find permanency in their lives - either through being reunified with their parents or, if that is not possible, through adoption or guardianship with loving, capable caretakers.

2) Specialized Foster Care

Sometimes the children and adolescents in foster care have been so traumatized by their life circumstances that they develop a number of chronic behavioral and emotional problems. The Specialized program provides intensive treatment services for them while working closely with their foster families to create the stability and support that is greatly needed in their lives. Most of the program participants are teenagers; many are in special education or require multiple services.
