- Types of Foster Care - 

Foster care services in WPHS come in several forms to address the
specific needs of children and the foster parents who care for them.


  • Family Foster Care
    Treated as family members, these children and teens receive full-time, short- or long-term care.

  • Kinship Foster Care
    Relatives, family friends, and those with a significant relationship may be licensed to provide care.

  • Respite Care
    Respite care provides a break for birth parents or foster parents from caring for children
    on a scheduled basis.

  • Concurrent Foster Care / Pre-Adoption Foster Care
    Foster parents assist and support reunification with the child’s birth family while committing to provide a permanent home for the child if the child cannot return to the parents or other appropriate family.
