What if I need help with the child in my care?

A worker from the Department makes regular visits to the home to help with problems that may arise. Foster parents are expected to discuss any issues that come up throughout the placement with their worker so he/she can provide supprt and assistance, or find a new placement for the child if need be. Changes must be planned carefully to prevent further emotional distress to the child. The foster child remains under the supervision of the Department while away from his own home.
