NCHS Foster Care Program

Working together for children

Although foster parents play a temporary role, their impact on children and families is lifelong. That’s why NCHS’s foster care program is a supportive and connected network of caring adults working collectively to nurture the child’s best interest.

Most importantly, children in foster care need a safe and loving environment until they can rejoin their families. NCHS supports parents and caregivers as they work towards permanency for their children. Download our Foster Care Flyer to learn more.
