Foster care is an opportunity to provide a safe haven to children who range in age from birth to 17, from all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Foster parents are essential to providing stable, temporary homes that protect and nurture these children in the hope of eventual reunification with their birth parents. Foster parents are 24-hour care providers and role models. They provide food and shelter and transportation to appointments. They are part of a team, working cooperatively with birth parents.
