Family and Community Services strives to find stable and loving foster families for children in need. Foster care is a program designed to provide a substitute family for children in an agency approved household. FCS is contracted with the Michigan Department of Human Services to provide foster care services as well as adoption services in various counties throughout the state.
The primary goal of foster care is to reunite children with their birth families Many children are waiting for stable and loving homes that can provide them with appropriate care and meet their needs while their birth parents work towards reunification. It takes a special family to be able to bond and care for a child or sibling group, and then say goodbye to that child. Nonetheless, children need your help.
Many children are older, have special needs, or are part of a sibling group and need to remain together. Foster care is founded on the premise that all children have the right to physical care and emotional guidance.
