TYPES OF CARE

Little Treasures - - FOSTERING -

There are dif­fer­ent types of fos­ter car­ing that peo­ple can do: Short-term fos­ter car­ers pro­vide tem­po­rary care for chil­dren for only a few months, or un­til al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments can be made Respite care place­ments al­low chil­dren who are al­ready liv­ing with par­ents or a fos­ter fam­ily to have a short stay with an­other fam­ily to give their main car­ers a break. This is a great way to de­cide if fos­ter car­ing is some­thing you want to do, as it is not a long-term com­mit­ment Long fos­ter care place­ments mean a fam­ily is will­ing to take care of a child with no def­i­nite end date
