What We Do

Our Goals:

  • To give dysfunctional biological families an opportunity to heal, grow and develop.
  • To develop and maintain trained and certified foster families in which each child is nurtured and valued.
  • To strengthen, where possible and appropriate, the foster child’s relationship with his/her family to promote reunification.
  • To advocate for and procure the very best ancillary support services available to meet each child’s unique needs.
  • To provide a safe and nurturing environment for abused and neglected children until they can be reunified with their biological families, be adopted or become emancipated, as appropriate.
  • To provide children and adolescents with supportive relationships with caring foster parents who are dedicated to a lifetime commitment where reunification of the child with his/her biological family is not possible.

Distinguishing Services:

  • On-call availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
