How You Can Help
Provide a Resource Home
You can offer family care for a child when his or her own family cannot provide a safe and sheltering environment.  This arrangement may be temporary or for an extended period, generally without the aim of adoption.   
 
The primary goal of WCCB is to preserve and strengthen a child's own home.  While a child is in your care, a caseworker visits the birth parents and helps them to overcome their situation so they can provide a safe home to which the child can return. 
 
If securing a permanent, safe home with the child's biological family is not a viable solution, only then do we work to free the child legally for adoption.  If you are willing to make a long term commitment to a child who is in your care and who becomes available for adoption, you will most likely be given first consideration for adoptive placement.
