In Michigan, there are approximately 13,000 children in foster care. In the Alcona/Iosco area we have a significant shortage of homes for youth. Foster Care identifies and places children in safe homes when they cannot remain with their families because of safety concerns. Foster families provide these children with the consistency and support they need to grow.
What it Takes to be a Foster Parent?
Foster children need caring individuals who can provide a safe and nurturing home. The primary goal during foster care is to reunite the child with his or her parents. This can take some time - we need caring adults who are willing to provide stability and safety for children in their care.
