A great service to any community.
In some cases a child will be left with no family to care for him, or the child’s immediate removal from his current home is necessitated by extreme circumstances. Emergency foster families are specialists at taking children at almost no notice. Often the children will be traumatized by the incident. They have been made temporarily parent-less and will need intensive help.
Emergency foster care was created to provide for the immediate needs of the child. This means the emergency foster parents would provide shelter, food, clothing, and other immediate necessities.
