Foster Care Services

Arden Shore knows that stable, permanent homes are foundational for children’s present and future well-being. When children have what they need to reach their full potential, they become thriving adults and contribute to our communities in meaningful ways.


Arden Shore makes sure children can recover and rebuild from abuse or neglect by working closely with foster parents to provide a nurturing home and stable environment. We do things like assessing the child’s physical and emotional needs before placement, working with the biological parents when possible, and regularly checking in on the foster parents and siblings.

Many adults play meaningful roles in helping children reach their full potential. Arden Shores was recognized by DCFS for the third year for exceptional foster parent involvement in providing input and guidance into our programs so we could make sure all our children have what they need to thrive.
