Foster Care

There are times when it is in the best interest of the child for that child to be placed in foster care. Our case workers will evaluate each situation and help the courts to determine if a child needs to go into foster care. Children can be placed in foster care voluntarily by a parent(s) or by a court order. If there is evidence of abuse, the county may seek a court order to move a child out of the home and in to foster care.

 

Adoption

There are many children waiting to be adopted across the state. Our caseworkers can help prospective parents with the adoption process.
