What is Foster Care?
Foster families provide homes for children whose families are unable to care for them. They are asked to take someone else's child into their home, care for the child and treat the child as a member of their family.
Foster Care is more than having a child or children in your home on a temporary basis. It is an opportunity to work with the child’s biological parents to help build a child’s future. Often children continue to visit their families until they can be reunited. In addition to food, housing, and clothing, they need emotional support, guidance, and, above all, hope.
