Foster Care Services

Foster care provides children aged newborn to 21 with temporary, loving and safe homes when their own families are unable to care for them. Qualifying foster parents become part of a county wide team, working together to support, nurture and protect children in need. While becoming a foster parent may not have to be a lifetime commitment to a child, it is always a commitment to be meaningful in a child's life.
