Foster Care

Mid-Plains Center is proud to offer Foster Care services. Right now, there are children in need of a home and a family that will give them safety and a nurturing environment that they can grow in. Mid-Plains Center believes that whenever possible, a child should be with their birth family; when that is not possible, a foster care home provides a safe place that gives the child and his/her birth family an opportunity to resolve conflicts or disruptions and learn healthy skills so the child can return home.

The foster care program is a family-based, service delivery approach providing individualized care for children, youth and their families. Care is delivered through an integrated network of services with key interventions and supports provided by foster parents who are trained, supervised and supported by qualified program staff.

What to Expect:
Our staff recruit, train and prepare foster parents and their families to become licensed to care for children ages birth to 18. In addition to providing education, medical care and support, foster families also play an important role in helping these children recover from the trauma and/or neglect they have experienced.
