Sometimes, safety concerns mean a child just can’t remain with their family of origin, and in that case, our Foster Care project comes into play. CIF’s Foster Care families are screened and trained to provide the best level of care possible to the children they take in, and are encouraged to love the children who become a part of their families. Some of these placements are medium-term, temporary arrangements, while families take the necessary steps to have their children reintegrated into their families. Many are the first step towards adoption for children in our care. Just like in Kinship Care, these children and families are followed up at least once per month for as long as is needed.
