Foster Care2

The Foster Care Program provides services, substitute care, and supervision for a child on a 24-hour basis until the child can return to his or her family or be placed in an adoptive home or another permanent foster care placement.

In the Foster Care Program, assistance is given to children and families in an effort to prevent removal of a child from his or her home. When parents are unsuccessful in changing conditions in the home, it may be necessary to place the child in foster care. In that case, the Foster Care Program provides services to enable the child to return home. If that is not possible, the program tries to find another permanent home. Foster Care is intended to be a temporary response to a difficult family situation, not a long-term solution for the family.
