As of 2016, there are over 402,000 children and teens in the Foster Care System nationwide!
Each and every one of these children deserves a home where they feel safe, secure, and have a chance to grow and flourish. A place where they can be a child!
It's our vision is to see children in the foster care system reunified with their families when deemed safe and appropriate. Should a child need the services of a foster home, we'll provide the best out-of-home care possible until a more permanent plan can be achieved. Because different children may need different types of care, we offer 3 types of Treatment Foster Care Services. Please follow the link for additional information on these specialized services.
We are committed to providing the highest quality treatment foster care services that promote success for children and youth. We recruit and train only the most skilled and nurturing families. We offer families twenty-four hour support, comprehensive initial and on-going training, and financial reimbursement.
