More Info:

Foster care is meant to be temporary until a permanent living arrangement is found. However, it can become permanent – usually when a foster parent adopts or accepts permanent managing conservatorship of a child.

CPS strives to ensure quality services for children in foster care. However, children in foster care may have to change placements several times while in foster care due to a variety of factors such as licensing standards violations, court rulings, or changes in the foster home or facility. CPS has a variety of initiatives designed to increase placement options to better match the needs of each individual child.

  • “We need people that are willing to go the extra mile. Just having someone that we can call and talk to when we are having a bad day or someone just to have as an emergency contact.”

  • “It's hard work but immensely rewarding. Fostering is the best thing I'm ever going to do in my life.”

  • “The growth that has happened in the six weeks we've had the kids is huge. It motivates us to keep going.”

  • “…fostering is about more than kids.  It's about caring for the biological family and having compassion for their circumstances.”
