After meeting with the Department of Health and Welfare, we’ve seen an immediate need in our community: a transitional home for children to stay before they are placed with a foster family.
This home is for children in transition from their current home to a foster home. Once opened and fully-licensed, children will be able to stay while the Department of Health and Welfare finds them not just the first home but the right home! This will help the caseworkers focus on finding the right home and help the children ease into foster care. Essentially, this means that the children wouldn’t have to sit in an office for hours on end or in some cases, have to sleep at the office until a home opens up.
We are happy to announce that after finalizing a few details our home will be officially licensed to accept children entering the foster care system!
We are still raising starting costs to have the home ready to care for children as soon as our contract is finalized. Thank you for any part you are able to play in this journey!
