As a foster-to-adopt family, it will be necessary for you to become licensed as a foster home and you will be assigned a Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) Case Manager to help you maintain your license.
The purpose of licensing our foster-to-adopt families is so that you may provide a home for children who may one day be eligible for adoption. While the child or sibling group may not be legally eligible for adoption, this does not mean that the legal case is not heading in that direction. The hope is that children will begin attaching to their prospective forever family prior to the termination of parental rights. Regardless of the outcome, foster-to-adopt allows loving adoptive families to provide a safe and caring home for a child in foster care.
