KidsPeace Foster Care provides help to more than 1,500 children with behavioral and emotional challenges as an alternative to placement in residential care. We offer a variety of services provided in an outpatient or in-home setting, allowing children to receive quality care while in the healing environment and care of our carefully selected foster families. The pillars of our foster care program, which distinguish us from other providers, are:
Cultivating Resiliency: We help children succeed where they have struggled and help them develop positive visions for the future. KidsPeace foster families and professional staff, along with community resources, assist each child to develop positive social, educational, and emotional skills and discover the strength and potential for future success. An understanding of the trauma many children have experienced is an important facet of this. In addition, the tools and techniques provided through the evidence-based practice known as "Together Facing the Challenge" are a key part of how resiliency is cultivated.
Healing Through Family Living: Through the power of family, children who have endured abuse and neglect experience healthy relationships with adults and positive parenting styles, and learn social skills through constructive role modeling. Toward this end, our professionals recruit, train, and provide 24-hour, seven-day-a week support to foster families to respond to the special needs of our youth.
Locations: KidsPeace has foster care programs in Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
