Foster Care & Adoption Services
Foster care provides safe, loving homes for children and youth of all ages who have been temporarily removed from their birth homes. Our resource (foster) families are vital partners in providing care, support, and a safe, nurturing environment for the children placed with them. Our foster care program certifies and trains resource families and supports families as they care for the children. Our goal is to assist in reunifying these children with their family of origin whenever possible. When that is not possible, we help find children a permanent home.
We are experienced in placing youth who need specialized foster care due to medical conditions, developmental disabilities, or behavioral challenges. In addition, we are trained to address the needs of youth in the LGBTQ+ community.
We are an affiliate agency of the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN), which serves children in the custody of county children and youth agencies. Our SWAN program provides services, free of charge, to families who have provided permanency through adoption, formal kinship, or legal guardianship. We assist the family to identify strengths, establish goals, and locate community resources for ongoing support.
