Foster Care Services
Benevolent House Child Placing Agency’s foster care program provides safe, quality care in a family setting for children and adolescents who cannot remain with their families. Their mission is to provide Benevolent families who provide strong foundations of support that improve the overall well-being of children. Benevolent House seeks to keep children closer to home and connected with their communities and families.
Benevolent House partners with Child Protective Services (CPS) to ensure children are placed with loving, supportive Benevolent families. The safety of each of the children that comes into BHCPA’s care is paramount.
What is Foster Care?
Foster Care gives children who are unable to live with their parents or other family members a safe place to live until they can return to their parents’ home or are found a permanent home.
When children can’t live safely at home and no appropriate non-custodial parent, relative, or close family friend is willing and able to care for them, the court can give temporary legal possession to Child Protective Services (CPS). CPS temporarily places these children in foster care. Foster care is intended to be temporary until a permanent living arrangement is found. However, it can become permanent – usually when a foster parent adopts or accepts permanent managing conservatorship of a child.
