Support for Foster Parents and Foster Youth

As a Foster Parent, you will be part of a connected team.  We will do this together!

Youth in foster care are surrounded by caring adults.  You will be join social workers, teachers, medical professionals, and mental health counselors who work together to stabilize the family, in the hopes that parents and children can be reunited.  When it’s possible, the birth parents also will have input into your foster youth’s well-being.

As a foster parent, you will be supported with:

  • Foster parent training
  • Support Groups
  • Mentors
  • Respite Care
  • Emergency Services
  • Medical Services
  • Logistical help

Stabilizing a family takes a coordinated effort.  You will be a vital part of this team.

The goal is to make this experience a successful one for you, your family, your foster child, and his or her family as a whole.
