What types of kids come into foster care?
Our program serves children 0 - 18 and in special circumstances up to age 21. There is no “typical” child or youth that comes into foster care.

Our program is seeking foster families to help us prepare for the entire spectrum need. We need foster homes that will take the following:
  • Adolescents who are involved in the juvenile diversion - we are seeking a therapeutic youth foster homes
  • Children with special needs - i.e. medical, educational, developmental, social, and emotional
  • Infants / toddlers
  • Sibling groups
  • Young children and school age children
  • Youth and adolescents
