Partners with the community to recruit, train, license, support and monitor foster and adoptive homes for children in foster care.
Foster and adoptive families are diverse in race, ethnicity, income and age. There are both single and married foster parents. We encourage interested persons to contact us to learn about the required 30 hour training "Model Approach to Partership in Parenting" (MAPP) offered four times per year.
There are children in need of committed, flexible, open, loving and capable families for short term placements as well as those families interested in fostering to adopt. The mutual assessment and selection process helps families determine if fostering is a good match for them.
Foster Home Licensing & Placement Services Include:
- Foster care board payment after licensure
- Ongoing support and training
