Nevada County Child Welfare Services Recognizes National Foster Care Parent Appreciation Month

Nevada County Child Welfare Services (CWS) is honored to announce that May is National Foster Care Parent Appreciation Month. Nevada County CWS is indebted to the amazing resource foster families who have opened their homes, heart and give their time to children in need of safety, stability and care.

Currently, Nevada County CPS supervises over 55 children in out-of-home care, with many of them placed with local foster families. In addition to resource foster families, there are many relatives and non-related extended family members who have opened their home to our local foster children to ensure they have stability, permanency and safety. Resource foster families, relatives and non-related extended family members provide temporary homes, safety, and nurturing to our children who are in most need. When reunification with birth families is not possible, many resource foster families choose to adopt the children who have been placed in their homes, offering permanency and stability for the children they have opened their homes to. This endeavor is appreciated, recognized and admired by Nevada County CWS and our community.

Nevada County Child Welfare Services would like to recognize the herculean efforts of all foster families, relatives and non-related extended family members who have impacted, improved and helped change the lives of children within our community for the better. Our Department is forever indebted and thankful for your effort. We appreciate you!

For more information about becoming a Resource Foster parent, please contact Program Manager Nicholas Ready at the Nevada County Child Protective Services Office at 530-265-1654 or nicholas.ready@co.nevada.ca.us.
