Our foster care program offers placement for children in county custody who are in need of loving homes. Through our medically fragile program we place children with medical problems, handicaps, developmental disabilities and/or traumatic separation issues, from birth to age 18. Our treatment foster care is an alternative to residential care for emotionally troubled children ages 4–18 years who need to learn ways to deal with unhealthy behaviors. Foster caregivers receive extensive training and support and are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. We are able to serve youth in counties throughout the State of Ohio.
