About Foster Care


What is Foster Care?

Foster Care is a temporary placement, which assists children in preparing for return to their birth parents or for a more permanent placement such as adoption or guardianship. Social workers visit the home on a regular basis to provide services to support the children's needs. Foster parents receive ongoing financial and medical assistance.

A Home For Me

CFS provides the community with information, training, and support needed to pursue foster care and adoption. Our procedures are flexible, culturally sensitive and responsive to the needs of the community. Staff are available to assist you through the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent.

Foster and adoptive parents are encouraged to team with each other and CFS staff to support the child and themselves.

Next Steps

CFS staff regularly schedule foster care and adoption orientations throughout the county. These orientations are designed to describe the roles of foster and adoptive parents.
