Foster or adopt:
a pathway to success for children and parents


How do we provide children who are separated from or can no longer live with their birth families the best opportunities to succeed? By finding them a loving permanent home or a supportive stable home that provides healing and growth until families can reunify. Foster parents, extended families, and other adults can be life-changers for children, providing continuity and the kind of support a secure and loving family can ensure. 

Until recently, it was common to refer to “foster homes.” Now, the language we use is resource families. Though the language is somewhat different, the goals remain the same — to work together so that foster children have the best chance to grow up in a committed, nurturing family home.
