Resources for Foster Parents and Caregivers
Resource families—which include foster parents, foster to adopt families, and relative/kinship caregivers—are critical partners in the foster care process. They provide care for children who cannot live with their parents, and they play a supportive role in reunification. A broad range of resource families are needed to support the many needs of children and youth involved in foster care. The resources in this section provide information on parenting children in foster care, outline ideas for working together with the permanency team, and offer helpful links for additional support.
