At People Places, we provide support as soon as you pick up the phone.

We enjoy building and maintaining relationships because we care about you and your family. What We Do:

Orientation and Open Houses

Join us at an open house event and orientation session to hear more about fostering and whether or not it is best for you. At these sessions, you will meet present and prospective parents in the People Places family as we work to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have.

Honest Conversations

When we first meet, we will listen closely to questions, provide feedback, and discuss your hopes and expectations. We will walk you through the process and explain everything you need to know about life as a foster or adoptive parent.

Parent Skills and Training

Once you become a foster parent, we will share our unique training system for foster and adoptive parents, which is a nationally recognized curriculum focused on developing specific skills for new parents.

Matching Support

When we meet a child who needs our help, we work tirelessly to find a certified parent who will be the best fit. We are continuously striving to introduce families who will love each other for life!

Ongoing Support

We are here to assist and support you, as much or as little as you need. We offer individual and family counseling sessions and are available 24-hours a day to answer your questions.

Adoption Support

If a child becomes available for adoption, we help prepare for this transition.
