Foster Parents provide a supportive and stable family environment for children who cannot live with their birth families. The goal is to provide parental care, guidance, and stability until the family’s issues can be resolved. Foster parents face a unique set of challenges in caring for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment, or the death of significant family members. Many foster children experience emotional, behavioral, or physical problems as a result of the traumas they have endured. However, a protective, supportive family environment has proven to be the best place to meet the immediate needs of these children.
