Department of Economic Security Division of Children, Youth and FamiliesChild Protective ServicesFamily Foster Homes and Placements  (August 2005, Report No. IB-0501)


Although there are over 1,000 beds available in family foster homes, there are over 1,500 foster children in group homes and shelters.  Matching the children to foster homes in terms of geographic locations, and the types of children the homes will accept, including older children and children with behavioral problems and special needs, is challenging.  However, even if more matches can be made, the Division will still not have enough family foster homes and will need to continue recruiting more homes.
