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.

“Arden Shore never gave up on me. Today I am healthy and I have my son back at home. For that, I am extremely grateful.”
