Foster parents provide nurturing and supportive homes in which the children’s emotional, physical and social needs can be met while issues and concerns in the biological family can be addressed. Our intent is to safely reunify children with their families, so foster parents are expected to work closely with biological families (when possible), the Weld County Department of Human Services, guardian ad litem and service providers.
In addition, you must learn about the needs of the child or teen and receive ongoing training, as well as:
- Provide a safe, stable, supportive home for young people in need
- Model positive parenting and act as a mentor for biological families
- Provide non-physical discipline
- Provide transportation to appointments
