Traditional Foster Parents are families who provide a nurturing home and family life to children in foster care. Placement is usually temporary but can last as long as 1 year or more. As a Traditional Foster Parent, you will work with Case Managers and in some cases, biological families to prepare children to be reunified with their family. When reunification is not possible, as a Traditional Foster Parent, you will be part of team to help find a "Forever Family" and prepare the child for adoption.
Who are Traditional Foster Parents
Traditional Foster Parents are just like you. If you have room for a child in your home and love and caring to give, you can help "change a lifetime" for a foster child.
About Children in Traditional Foster Care
Children in Traditional Foster Care are all ages. There is a tremendous need for families to care for siblings so that they can remain together in foster care. Children come into foster care due to abuse and/or neglect that may have occurred in their home and need patient and caring adults to provide stability and a safe home to help foster children recover from the trauma of being removed from their family.
