Foster Care and Adoption Services programs include: Foster Care Case Management Professional case management staff work with families and caregivers to access and coordinate services that are available and appropriate to the child's situation. Service needs for a child in the home with a parent may vary greatly from the needs of a child that has been removed from a parent or caregiver. Case Managers coordinate the delivery of community services to families and caregivers of the children in care. Case Management services are provided to " Preserve intact families by strengthening and educating parents and caregivers; Reunify children who have been removed from their family;" Maintain a stable, safe placement for children who are in out-of-home care; and; Locate appropriate, safe, and permanent placements for children who cannot be returned to their parents or caregivers. Case Managers assist parents with accessing a variety of community services that are available and appropriate to their situation. The goal is to ensure parents have the tools, services, and support they need to independently provide a safe, nurturing environment for their children. Adoption Case Management The Organization works hard to find a loving and nurturing "forever family" for each local foster child who is available to be adopted. There are many children of all ages who are available for adoption. These children deserve a family that will provide a safe and stable environment for them so they can reach their full potential. Adoption Case Managers conduct a comprehensive Child Study of each child that is available for adoption in order to recruit the most appropriate adoptive family. The primary goal is to always recruit adoptive parents that will meet the unique needs of each foster child.
