Foster care is a temporary protective placement for children who cannot live with their families. Children enter foster care through no fault of their own, usually because of abuse, neglect, family crisis, or other safety-related circumstances. The goal of foster care is to provide all children with a safe, stable, nurturing environment
A Foster Parent is an adult who has received training and is licensed to care for children who are in the foster care system. Foster Parents provide children a safe, stable, and nurturing environment until a permanency plan can be achieved. Permanency plans can include reunification with their biological families or adoption. Foster Parents must complete an application, complete PRIDE (Parent Resource for Information Development and Education) Training, and submit to a home study in order to earn their license and be allowed to have foster children in their homes.
