Resource Families, formerly known as Foster Families, provide care for children when it is unsafe for them to remain at home with biological family members.


Thank you for taking the first step to serving our county’s children and youth in care by visiting our website!

Our Resource Family Recruitment team is available to answer questions and provide information & support.

With your help, every child in foster care will be cared for by a safe, stable, and caring family in our community.
