Resource Parent - General Information

Resource Parents (which include foster and adoptive parents) provide a special service to children and to the community by providing love and ongoing care to children who cannot live with their birth families.

Children come into foster care because their biological families are unable to take care of them. Resource Foster families provide temporary homes until these children can be reunited with their own parents or another permanent plan such as adoption can be made.

Resource Parents do much more than provide shelter and supervision. They accept the challenge of nurturing the children in their care by providing stability, acceptance, guidance and love.
