Foster Care

The Foster Care Program provides for the temporary placement and supervision of a child or children placed in the custody of this agency by the court. While in foster care, a social worker will work together with the child or children’s family to address the family’s needs that brought the child or children into foster care.

Foster Care Goals

It is the goal of the Foster Care Program to provide permanency to children by:

  • Adoption or independent living, for older youth
  • Placement with an appropriate relative
  • Returning the child or children to the parent or prior custodian
