Children who are removed from their homes receive out-of-home services. These children could live in licensed foster homes or be placed with a relative. Children also can be placed with someone who is neither a licensed foster parent nor a relative. These caregivers, often neighbors or friends of the families, are called non-relative caregivers.
We work closely with our four Child Placing Agencies – Camelot Community Care, Cayuga Centers and 4KIDS of the Treasure Coast – to ensure ongoing recruitment training and licensing of quality foster homes.
