Foster Care Resource and Information…

With the updates to the site wanted to share some resource information and links related to foster care.

In doing some investigation into Washington State and working with our state representatives, I learned that as at June 30, 2018:

Placement Type Unrelated Licensed Foster Parents Relatives Other Total
Number of Children Placed 4,258 4,247 808 9,313
