Family Resource Network and Kaleidoscope Counseling currently has approximately 22 licensed homes. Of those, there is a mixture of respite providers, some who primarily provide foster care, a few adoptive families and those who do all of the above. Each family has their own niche and specializes in particular types of care. These can include:

  • Teen girls
  • Teen boys
  • Teen moms and babies
  • Sibling groups
  • Sexualized children
  • Delinquent children
  • Abandoned and neglected children of all ages
  • Abuse victims of all ages

 

Family Resource Network and Kaleidoscope Counseling strongly supports a family in their voyage of fostering and adoption. It is never our goal to disrupt a family in order to provide a child with one.

We assist with the certification and licensure of several types of homes to include:

Regular foster homes can have no more than four foster children

Needs Based Homes are certified for a maximum of six youth. Needs Based Homes will care for children and youth who require foster care services with some aspects of higher level care and coordination. The children or youth have more substantial health and medical needs and their needs regarding supervision, transportation, education, medical and contact are substantially more than those of many children or youth in regular foster homes. Reimbursement rates for Needs Based Homes are significantly higher than for regular foster care. This allows for the Needs Based Home parent(s) to not have outside employment. Caring for the children and youth are a full-time job.
