*A Focus on Teens*
The call for committed, caring foster families is great in communities across California. Foster families are a part of our
professional foster care team, fully supported by our staff in a close working relationship, providing foster children with the education,
stability, skills and support they need to succeed in the world as adults. Our social workers recognize and respond to the individual
needs of each child and support each family with
additional mental health, educational, recreational and treatment
resources. All of our foster parents are certified by Families For Children
to provide foster care and accept children placed through our agency.
We refer to our foster families as "professional parents", these families care for abused and neglected children who can be best helped in a family setting, augmented by professional services. To assist new Foster Families in beginning the process, we reimburse Fingerprinting Fees and CPR/First Aid training costs. We offer one on one personal interviews to prospective foster parents at their convenience.
