As you may be aware, Contemporary Family Services' foster parent program in Maryland will be closing as of March 16, 2012 and their current families need to relocate to other foster care providers. KidsPeace is happy to welcome families from Contemporary Family Services to our agency! We have two locations in Maryland and serve foster families throughout central Maryland. KidsPeace has a contract to provide THERAPEUTIC foster care as well as MOTHER/BABY foster care in the State of Maryland. As a result KidsPeace can accept families that have a child placed with them that has therapeutic needs and/or is a teen mother with a child. KidsPeace is committed to providing families and the children in their care exemplary service.

KidsPeace has an office in Columbia as well as Baltimore. KidsPeace accepts foster homes throughout Central Maryland including Prince George’s County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, and Charles County.

KidsPeace values our foster families and offers unique benefits such as FREE trainings offered in Baltimore City, Howard County, Prince George's County as well as online. KidsPeace foster parents receive unique supports including intensive independent living preparation, job preparation and job finding assistance for youth, mentoring, and a Family Therapist on-staff! Additionally, KidsPeace’s mother/baby program includes group and individual work with the teen mothers utilizing the evidence-based practice Nurturing Parent model.
