Emergency Foster Care

There are instances a child is immediately removed from their primary residence in a crisis situation and a rapid placement is needed. Often this occurs while trying to find the next of kin and they are unreachable or not local. This can arise after normal business hours, weekends, and holidays. Placement for this situation would be in a home with a provider that has a flexible schedule allowing for an easier transition for the child. In emergency foster care situations limited information may be available and placements can happen very quickly.

What People Say


The Journey Home Foster Care program focuses on three key areas: Recruitment, Training, and Support.

We strive to find high-quality caregivers for the children we serve. The intended result of recruitment is to find a family who is motivated and committed to providing a safe and stable environment for a child. The knowledge and skills of the foster parents are critical to the well-being of the children in their care.
Our training takes a comprehensive approach and requires families to complete pre-service training prior to being licensed as a foster or adoptive home. Families must also complete ongoing training hours to continue their education. Journey Home offers many opportunities for ongoing training and a variety of topics to meet the needs of the families and children that we serve.
After a child is placed with a family, the goal is to provide unequaled support for the entire family. Our experienced and professional case managers are committed and available to the families. They also provide in-home services, identify community resources, and act as the liaison between the family and the CPS caseworker.
