Loudoun Foster Care & Adoption
What is Foster Care?
Foster Care Program provides services to children and families when circumstances require the child to be removed from their home. Foster Care provides a safe and stable environment for children until the issues that made placement outside the home necessary are resolved. If it is determined that the child cannot return to their parents, an alternative plan will be developed such as placement with a relative or adoption.
Who are the Children in Need of Foster and Adoptive Homes?
The children who come into foster care range in age from 0 to 18 and come from diverse backgrounds. They may have experienced abuse, neglect or other issues endangering their safety. What they all share is the need to have a safe and stable environment. That is where foster parents come in.
Becoming A Foster Parent
Foster parents provide a temporary, safe home for children in crisis. We provide a comprehensive certification program and home study assessment. Throughout the class and the home study process, all individuals/couples will be mutually assessed for their fit with the needs of the Loudoun children in foster care. Those who become approved will be certified to foster and adopt.
The first step in becoming a foster parent is to attend an information session. They are held regularly at the Shenandoah Building,102 Heritage Way, NE Leesburg, VA 20176. If interested, call Michele Gonzalez, Foster Parent Trainer, at 703-771-5941 for more details. RSVPs are required as space is limited.
