Kids need to be raised by families. For the approximately 400+ youth removed from homes in San Luis Obispo County annually and placed into Foster Care, permanency home planning begins immediately. Permanency is a big word but at its heart it means one thing: Families for children. Our first priority is to reunite kids with their birth families whenever it is safe to do so. But some families are simply not able to reunite. For those children, our Department works diligently to identify adoptive homes early in the process.
If you are considering adoption, we hope the information found on this page will help you with your decision.
If you adopted a child or were adopted, we have resources available for you as well.
