When children come into foster care, they have often experienced some form of trauma. These children are in need of someone who will love them, support them, and keep them safe during the time that their own parents are unable to do so.
The goal for Child Welfare Services, with the help and support of Resource Families, is to help families successfully reunify. When reunification is not possible, we seek families who can continue to provide a safe, nurturing, permanent home for these children.
