Children & Family Services

Every family is unique.
Every family needs a village.

What do we do?

Our Children & Family service line has programs that provide safe, nurturing environments for children and families.

Our Family support programs work to empower families through family peer specialists who give families a wide “village” of support and connections to resources in the community.

Our foster care and adoption programs give children and youth the opportunity to join unique families created through love that provide safe, stable environments in their lives for long and short periods of time.

Other programs within the Children & Family service line also provide support in youth mentoring, advocacy, life skills training, and educational support.
