What is foster care?
When children are not able to stay safely in their own homes, they often come into state’s custody (foster care).
The agency works diligently toward a safe return home for our children (reunification). The length of time a child may be in a foster home could vary from one night to one year. In some circumstances, adoption will become the goal, and a child will need a "forever" home.
What are the responsibilities of a foster parent?
It requires patience and sacrifice to open your heart and home to a child that has experienced loss and trauma.
Children in foster care need someone who is willing to walk with them through their pain and help them heal.
They need unconditional love and understanding.
Code of Ethics for Foster Parents:
The Code of Ethics is a public statement by the National Foster Parent Association that sets clear expectations and principles to articulate basic values and to guide practice. Family foster care is a public trust that requires foster parents to be dedicated to service for the welfare of the children in their care.
