Foster Care and Adoption

Children’s Place Association believes strongly in keeping families together, making every effort to support the parent/child relationship. However, in situations of child abuse or neglect, foster care placement often becomes necessary. Our program matches children with capable, loving foster parents who are trained by our organization to care for each child’s specific needs. For children unable to return to their birth families, Children’s Place also facilitates adoption. The majority of foster children we serve also have special needs, including medical conditions and behavioral health issues.

Children’s Place is looking for adult couples and individuals willing to open their homes and hearts to a child in need. We seek parents who will offer the stability, guidance and love every child needs to develop and thrive. If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please contact us.

“Children’s Place has a wonderful support system. Even after adoption, I still have relationships and connections with the agency. They are awesome. They actually make you feel like family. Call on them. If there are services you need, they are there. If you need to talk, they are there.”
