Become a Foster or Adoptive Parent

CFCS believes that every child should be raised in a loving family. When possible, a child will be reunited with his or her birth parents, but when a reunion is not in the best interest of the child's welfare, our goal is to find a new family that will provide the child with a stable, supportive, and loving environment.

Our Intensive Foster Care program finds temporary families and our Adoption  program finds permanent families for children in the custody of the state. In each case, CFCS provides training, conducts foster care and adoption homestudies and offers supportive services in your home throughout the time that families are involved with our programs.  

For more information about becoming a foster or adoptive parent, get in touch with our Family Services program at familyservices@helpfamilies.org.
