The CAS works very hard to help children remain in their families; however, when they cannot remain at home because of serious concerns about their safety and protection, they come into care. When placement with a member of the immediate or extended family or a member of the community is not possible, foster care is the best alternative.
There is always a need for more foster homes. Foster parents provide stability and a caring home that encourages a child or youth’s development. They work with staff as part of a team. They may provide care for just a few days, a week, several months or possibly years.
Foster parents come from all walks of life and a variety of backgrounds. They may be young couples raising children of their own, experienced parents with grown children, or single people with or without training in child care or related professions. All have a genuine interest in children, a sense of community responsibility and enjoy the challenge presented by fostering.
The Society provides initial orientation and ongoing training, regular visits and support, access to other therapeutic services a child may require, and daily non-taxable reimbursement for the child’s living expenses and supplementary needs.
If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please call the CAS-HN for more information or find out more about the process, evaluation and training required to become a foster parent.
Please join us in realizing our vision: “A community that nurtures the lives and dreams of children”
Foster to Adopt
Fostering a child with a view to adopt is another way to provide a permanent home for a child. Please contact the CAS for more information.
