Our state’s foster care system is overburdened and the Department of Child Safety (DCS) is understaffed. This leaves many children in need of immediate shelter.
The lack of foster homes means that children are placed in group homes or shelters. Sometimes they end up sleeping in DCS offices.
There are children of every age in need of homes, from infants to teenagers. If you are considering foster care or adoption, the team at your agency of choice will help you find the right fit for your family.
Becoming a foster or adoptive parent is a process that takes time and commitment, but there’s no greater gift than opening your home to a child or children in need.
