Oaks Integrated Care Foster Home Program provides stable, loving homes for children and teens of all ages who are unable to live with their biological families. Children referred to the program are often victims of abuse and neglect and have special emotional needs.
As with any type of child rearing, foster parenting is life-changing, challenging and rewarding. Foster parents open their hearts and homes to children by providing a safe, nurturing family environment. They serve as primary caregivers until reunification with the biological family is possible. Placement may be as brief as a few weeks or last until a permanent home is secured.
