Foster

Foster

We stand for nurturing homes that transform lives.

Everstand's treatment foster program provides safe, community-based homes for youth while they await family reunification or permanent placement. We offer comprehensive support, in partnership with our incredible foster parents, to nurture youth’s physical, emotional, mental, and behavioral well-being.

Youth of all ages enter foster care for many different reasons, and as such, their needs can be varied. Some children and teens may be experiencing behavioral challenges or working through past traumas. Some may speak different languages, embrace different cultures, or identify as LGBTQ+.

Differences aside, at the end of the day these youth all need a stable, nurturing home environment that supports the whole person: physically, emotionally, mentally, and behaviorally.

How we support foster youth.
