BECOME A HOST FAMILY
For those looking for ways to help, but cannot commit to becoming a Licensed foster provider, THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO HELP! Together For Good & Safe Families are local organizations that offer struggling parents the option to have a family to CARE FOR their children on a temporary, voluntary basis DURING A FAMILY CRISIS, such as homelessness, hospitalization, or domestic violence, before the county steps in and involuntarily removes the children. Their goals are to support & stabilize families in crisis, reunite families, & reduce the number of children in foster care.
