The pandemic has changed how many things function, but the need for foster care homes has not diminished. NOAS provides short term fostering, long term fostering, and fostering to potentially adopt a child.
Short Term Fostering: This type of fostering is intended for a relatively short period of time, including anything from one overnight stay to several months. A child will remain in the short term fostering placement until they can return home to their biological family or are placed into a longer-term fostering arrangement.
Long Term Fostering: Often, a child will not be able to return to his or her birth family for a number of years, and therefore will need a safe and supportive fostering placement on a longer-term basis.
Fostering to Potentially Adopt: These placements involve foster parents who are willing and able to adopt the foster child placed with them, should that child become legally available for adoption. In the cases where parental rights are terminated, these foster-to-adopt placements provide the most stability for a child.
