One child at a time

In some cases, foster care is the key to making a difference in a child's life. Foster care families provide a vital service to children who have been abused or neglected and unable to live with their parents or families due to concerns for their safety and well-being. Often victims of physical, sexual or psychological abuse or neglect, these children deserve an opportunity to experience a healthy, loving, and safe home environment.
