Foster Care

Loving foster parents, helping children build bright futures

Every child deserves a bright future. With the help of our caring staff, foster parents who we call Mentors provide the support children need to thrive, wherever their life journeys take them. A child’s Mentor foster parent is their advocate, their teacher, and a friend when they need one most. They’re family. Because we believe loving families are where children thrive.

We get to know each child and their needs so we can create a care plan just for them. That may include counseling, nursing care, skill building, and other supports. And they have the support of their Mentor and a team that is passionate about helping children thrive.

Every step of the journey

For the children we serve, foster care is one part of their journey. We help them get to the next. Sometimes that means going back to their family and home of origin. Other times that means adoption. For young adults, it can mean becoming independent. Our Mentors and team members are with them every step of the way.

Therapeutic foster care

Our therapeutic foster care homes are loving, nurturing places where children with trauma or behavioral challenges can heal and grow. Caring Mentors give them the support they need to reach their full potential.

Kinship foster care

In some families, a child’s grandparents, aunts, uncles, or other relatives may open their homes as foster parents. Like all of our Mentors, kinship foster parents have the support of our expert team so they can help the children they care for live well.
