The Foster Care Program provides services to children and families when
circumstances require the child to be temporarily removed from their home.
Foster care provides a safe and stable environment for children and older
youth until the issues that made placement outside the home necessary
are resolved. When a child cannot return home, another permanent home
is found for the child through adoption or legal custody by a relative.
We are always looking
for families to serve as foster parents. If you are interested in being
a foster parent for King and Queen, or would like additional information,
please call our office at (804)-785-5977 or (804) 769-5003 and/or email
