It is the mission of the Foster Care program to ensure safety, permanence, and nurturing families for children.
There are times when children can not be safely maintained in their homes and Social Services has to intervene. Children are placed through the Court system with relatives or other people in their community. When kinship placements are not successful, children are placed in licensed foster homes or other facilities. The goal of the intervention is to find a safe permanent home for children emphasizing reunification with families of origin first.
We work under the belief that all families have strengths. It is our charge to assist families in building on them to achieve success.
