The Alternate Care Program
The Alternate Care Program is a specialized foster care program which provides care for children with developmental difficulties.
The program was established in 1981 as a way to prevent children from being institutionalized. The program offers respite and/or shared care for families with special needs children.
The parents of the special needs child retain guardianship and continue to make all the major decisions regarding their child. The parents and foster parents work closely together to provide the best possible care for the child with special needs. The amount of care provided is based on the individual needs of each family.
To learn more about becoming a Foster Parent call our Foster Care Recruiter at (519)753-8681.
