Foster Home Care Options
yellow
Just like the children needing care, there are a variety of foster care opportunities families can choose to provide. A foster family social worker will assist you with any questions you may have and will help you in selecting the best care type for your family.

  • Emergency Foster Homes: Licensed homes that accept emergency placements from law enforcement and KCSL family support services including after hours, weekends and holidays. Children may or may not be in the state’s foster care system.

  • Family Foster Homes: Licensed homes for children in foster care working to reunite with their family of origin or for those needing adoption while they are waiting to be matched with a family.

  • Foster Home Respite Care: From time to time, foster parents need a break. Respite care families provide coverage for other foster parents for partial days or overnight help in situations when the primary foster family needs time away.

  • Therapeutic Foster Care: An individualized familybased treatment option for children and youth with serious emotional and behavioral disorders. Foster families receive additional and specialized training to provide this level of care.

  • Children’s Residential Services: Care for developmentally disabled children, ages 5 through 21, to avoid placement in institutional or other congregate residential settings when they cannot remain with their families of origin. Foster parents receive training specific to caring for the child’s disability and 24/7 support from KCSL.
