Foster Care & Preventive Services

Foster Care & Preventive Programs strengthen families in times of crisis. We partner with parents to provide the tools and skills necessary to heal through family crises and build loving, happy family foundations for children and youth to thrive.

Foster Care Program

HSVS’ Foster Care Program ensures that children in foster care experience a seamless transition to a safe, stable and loving home, following removal from their birth families. Once children are in foster care, HSVS works to ensure their well-being and towards achieving permanency, either through reunification with birth families, kinship guardians or adoption. Additionally, HSVS provides intensive support to older adolescents and their foster and biological families to prepare them for aging out of care and coping with the transition to adulthood.
