Foster care is about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It is about opening your home and your heart to a child who is not safe in their home due to abuse, neglect or dependency. These children need a temporary, safe and nurturing environment where they can thrive while their parents address the challenges in their lives with the expectation that the child and parents will be reunited.
