To have foster and foster-to-adopt parents who are a support to families, not a substitute for parents. There is also a need for families who are interested in adoption if, after supporting the child and their family, reunification is unsuccessful.

  • Foster parents are part of a professional team, which includes parent(s), social workers, court-appointed special advocate/guardian ad litem (GAL), court personnel, therapists, school staff, and other professionals.
  • Foster parents support birth families toward reunification.
  • Foster parents provide safe, loving, temporary care for children whose parents cannot safely meet their needs. The majority of children or youth who cannot be safely reunified with their parents/guardian will achieve permanency through their relative, kinship family, or foster parent. 
  • Foster parents support children in maintaining their connections to their community, school, family, friends, and faith.
  • Reunification is the primary goal and the most common outcome.
