Join ResCare’s Family of Foster Care Providers

ResCare Youth Services partners with people in the community who open their homes to children in need of an alternative, safer living environment.  Most are typical children with typical needs for care and support.  Some are individuals with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities.  We specialize in matching the children we serve with dedicated and caring home providers.

ResCare’s Foster Care program provides a nurturing and family-like environment, community involvement, personal care and support and close relationships with care providers.

Our providers supply all of the care needed for a child in this program. Assistance is provided with all daily living activities, 24 hours a day, so the child is given a family-like home and atmosphere.

We work closely with foster care providers to ensure positive relationships develop, and we remain in continuous contact with all parties to meet each individual’s needs. All providers must pass background checks and receive extensive training, including medication administration, CPR and first aid.
