Foster Care Services provide temporary care to children who are unable to remain with their family. Caseworkers provide the services and supports necessary to reunite the family. If a child cannot safely return to his or her family, the agency works to develop a permanent plan for the child, including assisting in developing and maintaining supportive connections and assisting older children to learn skills needed to live independently.
