What are the options in foster care?

Traditional Foster Care
Families provide care and ensure the health and well-being of children in care while birth-families complete case plan requirements, in order to achieve reunification with their children (which may include treatment, securing housing, parenting/mental health/chemical health assessments). Foster providers are responsible for ensuring that​ children remain connected to their community, peers, and birth families.

In the case that reunification is not possible, foster providers may have the option to be a permanency resource for the child/children in their care through adoption, transfer of custody, etc. 

What EVOLVE provides:

  • A thorough home study assessment of families, helping them assess their strengths and areas of growth in preparing to care for foster children.
  • Connections with multiple counties and intensive support to families once children are placed in the home.
