Foster Care Program-Emergency Foster Homes
 These homes provide short term care (up to 30 days) to children and youth who have been abused or who are in conflict with their birth parents. Short term fostering provides a safe place for a young person to live while a Human Services social worker works with the family to get the young person home as soon as possible. Emergency foster care providers need to be flexible, warm and confident people who can also be assertive and able to work as part of a team. Options for short-term foster care include being on call one, two or more weeks per month with stipends paid for holding of beds during designated weeks.
Foster Care Program-Long Term Foster Homes
 These homes provide structured and stable care to children, from infant to young adulthood who require longer than emergency/short term care. Long term care becomes necessary if the child is facing abuse, neglect, or abandonment within their own families. If a child is removed from their home, the foster family works with Human Services and the biological family to reunite the child and his/her family while the child is safely housed with the foster family. If reunification is not possible, other options for permanency for the child include relative placement, adoption or independent living.
Foster Care Program-Respite Homes
 Respite homes provide part-time care, generally 1-2 weekends per month, for foster children or children who reside with their birth families. Respite providers are reimbursed by the Human Services Department. Provision of care is done within your own home or occasionally in the child's home.
Foster Care Program-Treatment Foster Homes
 Treatment foster homes provide care to children with behavioral, emotional, developmental, or medical needs using a fami8ly centered, team approach. Treatment foster parents must meet all of the licensing requirements for foster parents along with additional ongoing and specialized trainings. Monthly treatment foster care rates begin at $1,100.00.
