Mission Statement

Montgomery County Foster and Adoptive Parent Services recruits and trains foster parents to become substitute families for children in need who have been abused and neglected. Foster parents provide food, clothing, and shelter, plus the love, stability, guidance, and discipline these children need until they are reunited with their families or are adopted. Foster parenting is both a responsibility and an opportunity. It is one of the highest forms of community service. Montgomery County Child Welfare Services provides pre-service and in-service training; a monthly payment for the foster child's expenses; medical,dental, prescription drug and mental health coverage; child care assistance; and case work services to the children in your home.

Description

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent or simply want to learn more, please call our recruitment line at 240-777-1664. The Department has a particular need for foster parents that can take children 13 years of age and older, newborns, teen mothers and their babies, sibling groups, and children with special needs. Foster parents who speak other languages are also needed.
