Where Foster Families Fit

CFS Western is responsible to plan for children when their safety is compromised in their home. These children, impacted by family crisis, are in need of temporary homes and families who can provide safe, healthy, and stable homes. Being a foster family means offering daily care, direction, and a sense of belonging for the foster child. Ultimately, the goal of our Agency, in part through this foster care, is to have children return to their parental homes.

When this is not possible, our Agency is also responsible to ensure each child’s right to a lasting and loving home is realized. This can include adoptions, long term foster care, or preparation for independence.
