The AFCS Foster Care Program has been a state-licensed child-placing Agency since 1999, providing intensive out-of-home placement for children that have been the victims of abuse or neglect or for children with delinquency issues. Our Therapists and Case Managers work in each Foster Home to provide consultation and support to the foster families, schools, and other community providers, ensuring that the children placed quickly achieve a level of stability within the foster home and community. We believe that providing a stable place for kids will help them develop the skills to shape their own future. Our team philosophy of family support is what sets our agency apart from other treatment agencies, as each child is surrounded by a team of caring professionals.
Our Foster Care Program takes in children from birth to 18 years old. Virtually all of these children have experienced traumatic events to varying degrees, such as neglect, abandonment, abuse and violence. This trauma results in the severe behaviors that are brought into foster care. Children are placed in our program on either a protection or delinquency order.
Children in Foster Care have very intense needs, which make our work both challenging and rewarding. We have seen children make great strides in their healing, and most develop the ability to transition either back home to their family, or to Independent Living.
