My Child is in Foster Care
The goal of the child welfare system is to protect children and provide services to help them stay at home. When the Juvenile Court decides that a child is no longer getting the care they need from their parents or guardians at home, they may place the child in Out of Home Care. Depending on the needs of the child, placement may be provided by a relative or kin that has been approved for placement, a licensed foster parent, or a licensed residential facility.
