For more than 25 years, The Barry Robinson Center’s Foster Care Program has provided quality foster care and foster parent training. When a situation requires a child or teen to be away from their biological family, we can place them with a stable, loving and nurturing foster parent until the child can return home again. Occasionally, when returning home is not possible, we can also assist the foster family through an adoption process.
Each child and each situation are different, which is why we take the time to get to know every child’s background and family situation. We work closely with our foster parents to ensure the right fit between foster family and child.
Foster parents receive extensive training to learn how to support children and meet their developmental needs. By providing a supportive and safe family structure, foster families give children and teens an environment that offers an opportunity for normal growth and development.
Besides training, we offer 24/7 support to our foster families. Our foster care team members are backed by BRC’s comprehensive resources of, including counselors, physicians, dietitians and therapists.
We want to see children return to their biological family when that’s the goal of the child’s foster care service plan. Other youth may remain in a foster home and ultimately be adopted by the family. Many of the children placed into foster care through BRC return to their families, while others result in adoption.
If you are interested in sharing your heart and home with a foster child, we would love to speak with you. We need foster parents to provide loving, stable homes for children and teens while families heal.
