Foster Home Management is a program designed to provide children who have been removed from their homes as a result of abuse, neglect or abandonment with a stable nurturing environment where they can develop to their fullest potential.
Mount Bethel Human Services believes that if children have to be removed from their homes, they could best benefit from some stability through familiarity. Therefore, Foster Home Management is the next line in our continuum of care in order to ensure safety, permanency and the well being of children.
