Are you looking for foster care in the Buncombe County/Asheville area? We provide both traditional foster care as well as therapeutic foster care services.
Therapeutic Foster Care
Therapeutic foster care is a temporary living arrangement for abused and neglected children. These children need a highly structured and supportive living environment due to the fact that some of these children have been diagnosed with a mental health and or substance abuse diagnosis. Because of this, these children will need this service to receive the treatment and care that is required. These children may be in the custody of their parent(s) or DSS.
Family Foster Care
Family Foster Care is a temporary living arrangement for abused or neglected children. These children are under the protected custody of the local Department of Social Services (DSS) when they believe that these children are in an unsafe environment and their current families cannot take care of them. The job of the family foster parents, DSS, agency staff, and the birth family will have the goal in mind of reunification with their family. However, when reunification is not possible, foster parents will be given the opportunity to become adoptive parents.
If you want to provide these children with a loving and caring home, then please contact us today.
