The dedicated individuals we rely on to provide foster care are a valued part of our organization.
Many of our foster families come to us as referrals from current foster parents, which acts as an initial level of screening.
After expressing interest in becoming a foster parent, our social workers reach out to guide the applicant through our screening process. In addition to the standard background check, fingerprint index clearance and home safety inspections, we also conduct one-on-one interviews, training (individual and group), and an independent study program.

We know that the most valuable thing we can do is empower foster parents with the tools and knowledge they need.
To accomplish this, our highly trained social workers perform weekly home visits to provide guidance and support to the family, and ensure the wellbeing and stability of the family as a whole.
Our foster family program provides a variety of social services.
- Medical or dental treatment
- Substance abuse programs
- Pregnancy prevention information
"Seeing kids and families thrive with our support has been the greatest reward this job has afforded me.”
