What is a Resource Parent? Any individual, couple, or family who wants to provide care to a related or unrelated child(ren) who is under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, or otherwise in the care of a county child welfare agency or probation department.   They care for and embrace children of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and abilities.  They provide children with need, love, care, and a sense of belonging until child can reunify with their families or reach permanency.

Once approved, Resource Families may be considered for placement for foster care, adoption or legal guardianship, depending on the Resource Family’s goal. Resource Family Approval does not guarantee placement of a child.
