Foster Care is the temporary care of children who cannot currently live with their own families for many different reasons. The Family Court System typically places children in Foster Care through Erie County Department of Social Services.
Foster care is a way of providing a family life for children who cannot live with their own parents. All over the world, foster families open their hearts to children in need, and share their family life with them.
Ideally, placement in Foster Care does not exceed more than a year. The goal of Foster Care is to reunite the child with their families as soon as it is feasible.
