Foster Care


  • Long-term foster care is not the answer
  • Each child needs permanence as early as possible
  • The birth family is the child’s best resource
  • The entire family is our client
  • A group makes a better decision than an individual
  • The birth family needs to be included in the decision-making process
  • It is our responsibility to provide a safe place

Our Butte & Shasta County Foster Parents:

  • Are flexible and take on challenges
  • Laugh, cry, and can be themselves
  • Support birth families and put children’s needs first
  • Are representatives in the larger community
  • Provide a safe shelter for children
  • Model, mentor, and support the families of children


  • Include the birth family
  • Facilitate relationship between birth and foster families

The Butte and Shasta County unit utilizes the Family Centered Team (FCT) approach to cases; gathering birth parents and foster parents, relatives and friends, CPS and FFA workers to make group decisions utilizing strengths in the family system.
