A Single Connection Can Change A Life
Aspiranet Foster Care program is designed to keep permanent connections for
children in California’s foster care system. Reunification with
birth families is the primary goal for children in foster care.
Permanent connections with family members are critical for
children in foster care. Those connections must be maintained
and supported, or built no matter where the child is living and
no matter how long a child is in foster care. Another critical
goal of foster care is to insure a child’s safety with a loving
family who supports the child's reunification to his or her
birth home. If reunification is not possible, other permanent
connections must be maintained and supported with the child’s
relatives, teachers, mentors, and those who the child knows and
trusts. In many cases, that becomes the child’s foster family.
Through our network of over 750 foster families, we match the needs of the
child to the strengths of the families in our network. This
matching process is a key feature in the success of our foster
family's. For over 30 years, Aspiranet has provided children in
foster care with safe and loving homes that meet their
individualized needs. We do so by recruiting the best families
all over California, to care for them by providing training,
support and resources to those families, many of which go on to
adoption. We can help there too!
Over 61% of the children who leave Aspiranet homes, are reunified with
their birth families. This is a success for those children and
their parents. Each person, including the foster families, play
a part in that success. We value and support the permanent
connection between children and their birth families. Our most
successful foster families support the safe return of children
to their birth families. Many keep connections to those children
and their birth families – they become another permanent
connection to that child.
