Reunification | Foster care is the safe temporary placement of children who cannot remain safely in the home of their parent or guardian. They are placed with foster parents, who provide a temporary, safe and nurturing environment for a child who is unable to remain in his or her family.
“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them become what they are capable of becoming.”Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Foster Children Are Reunified With Their Biological Parents
Reunification is the process of reuniting foster children with their biological parents once those parents are equipped to care for their children in a safe and loving environment. Family Reunification services are provided by Child Welfare Services (CWS) to families whose children have been temporarily placed in out-of-home care.
“We got a lot of support from the visit supervisors, social workers, and the foster parents. It made me feel like I mattered and that I wasn’t going to be just another statistic.”
– Tasha, Biological Parent
We’re Here to Help
Foster care is not forever. The ultimate goal is to provide support during a tough time with the hopes of returning the foster child to the biological parents.
