The Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is seeking qualified Resource Families!
In Arkansas, there are over 4,000 children in foster care at any given time with an average of 1,200 active foster homes to provide care to these childrens. Most children in foster care have experienced trauma not only related to abuse and neglect, but also the trauma of removal from their family and everything that represents family to them. Many of these children need foster families that will care about them, will commit to providing temporary care, and will help them stay connected to family while those family members remedy safety issues so the children can safely return home. DCFS is seeking quality foster families to provide this temporary care, serve as reunification partners with children's families, and meet the individualized needs of children in foster care.
In Arkansas, there are about 500 children in foster care awaiting a “forever” home. Many of these children have special needs, but all 500 children are waiting for qualified families to make the lifetime commitment to be their forever home. The greatest need is for families willing to make a commitment to older youth, sibling groups, and children of all ethnicities.
