Foster care services offer temporary care for abused, neglected or court ordered children to create family reunification or other forms of permanence for the children. The intent of services is to maintain family unity and ensure that all children have a permanent home. Procedures for interstate placements of children are intended to safeguard children while assuring appropriate responsibility and communication among all parties involved.
Adoption Services are provided for children in the care and custody of the agency who have been legally and permanently separated from their family. Adoptive studies are provided to the court for independent adoptions.
