Foster Care

Foster parents are people (single or married; employed inside or outside the home) who provide a safe and nurturing home to children who are in the custody of a local department of Social Services. Foster parents work in partnership with the child, the agency and the birth parents to resolve problems and reunite the family whenever possible. Adults, over the age of 18, may become foster parents if they meet certain requirements set forth by the Virginia Department of Social Services.

If you are interested in obtaining more information on becoming a foster parent, please contact the Social Service Department.
