PARENT AIDE SERVICES
The parent aide program is a family preservation program designed to offer support and services to families to maintain the family unit. We also provide supervision for family visits for children who are placed in foster care and have the goal of reunification.
FAMILY FOSTER CARE
This is what is usually meant when the term "foster care" is used. Family foster care in most cases involves taking in a child who is not a part of your own family, on either a short or long term basis, until they either return to their birth family, move on to another foster home or other setting, are adopted, or turn 18.
Adoption & Permanency
When you adopt a child into your life, it is a bond that you establish forever. You are taking the responsibilities, challenges, and benefits of caring for that child upon yourself and your loved ones. Your lives will be greatly affected by this wonderful decision!
"Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children" (ICPC) is a contract and uniform federal law among member states that exist to...
- ensure that if a child is moved across state lines, that child’s rights are protected as if they were in their home state
- provide a monitoring mechanism to ensure children are safe
- ensure that the child receives services in the receiving state once placement is granted.
