FOSTER

What is Foster Care?

Foster parents provide temporary and specialized care for a child that is not a relative, ranging in age from infancy to 18. These children have been removed from his or her home and deserve a safe, stable and loving home in this turbulent time. Panhandle Child Placement Services wants to partner with couples or individuals seeking to provide for these kids. 

What is Our Goal?

Facing the foster system alone can be a daunting task. Panhandle Child Placement Services wants to utilize our 65+ years' experiences to help prepare and navigate you through the child welfare system. We use Good Child Placement Practices; always placing a child, as if in our own home. Panhandle Child Placement services is an advocate for children and the parents opening their homes. 

What is Reunification?

The goal of foster care is reunification with a child's birth parents or a family member. The court system mandates a child's place of permanence. Until that time, children need a safe, stable home with foster parents.
