Permanent Family Connections (Foster Care)
All of our Foster Care services (including Standard Treatment Foster Care and Intensive Services Foster Care) are focused towards permanency for youth – “a permanent connection to a safe, stable, and nurturing family.” The program utilizes concurrent planning, which provides several paths for youth to obtain a lifelong family connection. The first and best option is to reunify the youth with their birth family. At the same time, Stanford Youth Solutions works to identify a family who is willing to make a lifelong commitment to the youth, if reunification is not possible.
Becoming a Foster (Resource) Parent
When you decide to become a foster parent (now referred to as a resource family), the most important decision you will make is with which agency to partner.
Stanford Youth Solutions gives foster parents/resource families the complete support they need to successfully care for youth who desperately need safe, loving families to call their own in the greater Sacramento-area.
“I looked at six other agencies first, but Stanford Youth Solutions offers unwavering support around the clock.”
