Through our Child Placing Agency, children, ages birth through 18 years old, are placed in therapeutic foster homes where they are cared for, while learning what it means to trust and be loved. Foster care is an essential service for children and parents who must live apart due to abuse or neglect while maintaining legal and, usually, affectional ties. The value of family foster care is that it can respond to unique, individual needs of children and their families through the strength of family living, and through family and community supports. The goal of foster care is to provide opportunities for healing, growth, and development leading to healthier children and families.
