Boulder County Foster Care and Adoption Orientation
Foster parents provide temporary care of a child or children while supporting family and agency efforts to reunify the parents with their children. Most children served by the agency remain at home, but for those children whose safety requires temporary removal, the goal is always to reunite the family.
Boulder County needs foster families to serve children of all ages and their families. The children most in need of your help, though, are adolescents, siblings who wish to stay together in foster care, and children with special needs.
Many foster parents hold the hope of adopting a child. For some foster families this is possible. All families are initially certified exclusively for foster care. In the event that a child or children in their care is unable to return to her/his parents, that foster home may be asked to be the permanent family for the child or children.
