- Are you feeling overwhelmed, unable to cope, and not sure where to turn?
- Are you needing hospital care but have no extended family to rely on for child care?
- Are you not sure where you will sleep tonight and need a safe place for your child to be?
- Are you in an abusive situation and in fear of your or your child’s safety?
There are many reasons why you may need temporary care for your child. And though it might feel like your last resort, we realize it is never an easy choice to place your child in a stranger’s home.
Rest assured your child will be in a safe and loving environment during their stay with a Care Family. Our Care Families are rigorously evaluated including background screenings and fingerprints.
Please know we will do all that we can to help connect you with resources and be your advocate. Most importantly, you are never at risk of losing legal custody of your child while they are in the ConnectCare program.
ConnectCare is strictly a voluntary program and though our average length of care is 2 to 4 weeks, you may request to have your child back in your care at any point.
