NWF Health Network directly oversees the placement of children in foster and adoptive homes that provide standard or specialized care, depending on the child’s needs. NWF Health Network’s Foster Family Support team recruits foster parents through a screening and training process that is both rigorous and supportive. It is our goal to recruit, license, and support quality foster parents who are trauma-competent, trained, and well-equipped to serve all of our children.
We train, equip, and support our families caring for foster children in our community. We would love for you to become a valued part of our team!
Foster parents provide a home for a child whose family is in crisis. The goal for children in foster care is for them to be reunited with their family when it is safe to do so. Foster children have unique needs, and our goal is to equip families who will nurture our children to heal and thrive.
