Foster Care

Child Welfare protects children from abuse and neglect. We work with families to ensure the safety of their children and to assist them in reaching their full potential. When children cannot be cared for by their families due to safety issues, we place them with families that can provide a temporary to lifelong commitments to them. We work in collaboration with the community toward healthy independence for families and their children.”

RFA is a new family-friendly and child-centered caregiver approval process that combines elements of the current foster parent licensing, relative approval, and approvals for adoption and guardianship processes and replaces those processes
