CSSW offers foster care for children who have been separated from their birth families for reasons of abuse and/or neglect. CSSW licenses foster families to provide a safe, loving temporary home until the child can be reunified with their birth family.

Information Meetings

If you are considering becoming a foster parent as an avenue to build your family, after you register on the Michigan Foster Care website, we encourage you to attend one of our upcoming Foster Care/Waiting Child Adoption Orientation Meetings. There are no fees associated with becoming licensed for foster care.

Information meetings are held via Zoom on the first and third Wednesday of each month to provide an overview of the foster care program.
