The goal of HSA’s foster care system is to ensure the safety, permanency and well-being of children who either temporarily or permanently cannot be safely maintained in their own homes. Foster care is intended to be a short term situation until a permanent placement can be made.
While in foster care, a case worker is assigned to the child and his/her family to assist with case plan development and to work on minimizing the safety threats in the family so the child can be safely returned home.
New children come into the foster care system daily, resulting in a continuous need for new qualified, foster parents. Have you ever thought about fostering? Please join us at one of the next orientations to learn about our programs, licensing process, and how you can help children in Washoe County!
