Foster Care

Children who need resource family homes (formerly called foster homes) are of all ages and from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Most of the children are school age. Some are sisters and brothers who do not want to live apart. They have experienced separation from family and the effects of abuse or neglect, but they are still growing and learning and can blossom in a family able to offer them safety and stability.
