Family foster care is temporary in an approved family home on a 24-hour a day basis. Children who cannot remain with their own families are provided with stable family living situations. Potential foster care families are recruited and assessed and children are prepared for placement. Financial assistance, orientation, training, and other support services are provided to foster care families by DSS and contract agencies.
