Family and Children's Service
Service We recruit and license foster homes for teenagers in Calhoun and Barrie Counties.
Foster care is designed to provide a substitute family for a child who needs temporary care.
Foster care provides each child the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. The foster family must remember that the first goal of Foster Care is to re-unite families whenever possible. To do this, the foster family must work with the child in healing relationships with parents, siblings, other family members, peers, and significant others.
Foster parenting is not a lifetime commitment to a child, but a commitment to be meaningful during a child's lifetime.
