Foster Care

When no appropriate friends or relatives are available, the agency must rely on the assistance of agency foster parents.  Our foster parents are licensed through the Department of Job and Family Services and receive pre-service and on-going training in working with children placed in their homes.  We attempt to match the needs of the child with the strengths of the foster family.

The agency pays a per diem to assist with the cost of caring for children placed in foster homes.  All therapy and medical care needed by the child is covered by the medical card or the agency.

The foster care/adoption worker and the child’s assigned caseworker work closely with the foster family to create a team approach on safely reunifying the child with the parent or, if reunification is not an option, a permanent placement plan for the child is developed.

Agency foster families may also be approved as adoptive applicants.  If a child becomes available for adoption and appropriate relatives are not available, foster parents will be considered as an adoptive placement.  For more information on becoming a foster parent call 937-498-4981.
