Every day, children come to the attention of Protective Services because of abuse and neglect concerns. These children range in age from birth to over eighteen, are primarily Caucasian and are often part of a sibling group. These children need someone to provide a family setting offering safety, unconditional love and acceptance. Many children stay with kin - relatives or special people in their lives with whom they have a significant relationship. Others will stay in foster care until they return to their parents or kin. Others will move toward adoption. All children need to know they are special and have their hopes and dreams nurtured so they can grow into the very best they can be. All children need safety while also having their needs for wellbeing and legal permanency met.
