We know children thrive when placed with loving, stable families. When children enter our Foster Family program, our ultimate goal is to find them permanency, whether that’s with relatives, their foster parents, or to return to their birth home.
Once a child is placed in our Foster Family program, if they’re unable to return to their birth home, or to be placed with relatives, we seek adoptive homes.
Under new standards in California (as of 2017), any approved foster family is also approved as an adoptive family. You aren’t required to adopt children placed in your care, but the new standards streamline the process if that’s your desire. Interested? We’d love to help you become a forever family.
Adopting a child is a big decision.
Our staff can work with you to decide if you would be a good fit. Many people assume factors like age or relationship status disqualify them from being considered. Get in touch with us and we’ll answer any questions you might have, and guide you through the process.
