What Is Foster Care?
Foster care provides a temporary, safe home for children in crisis. Foster parents help facilitate the child's support, treatment, and care programs by becoming partners with the child's social worker, teachers, and doctors. Being a foster parent is not a passive act of opening one's home and providing food, clothing and shelter, but instead a proactive statement of nurturing, advocacy, and love.
