Foster care is the temporary placement of children outside of their own homes.  It occurs because of abuse, neglect, or other family problems. When possible, the Department of Children and Family Services and other agencies work with families to reunite them.  When that’s not possible, measures are taken to get the children adopted or prepared for independent life.
