State of TN Department of Children’s Services Foster Care and Adoption
Foster care is meant to be a temporary service until the family and in some cases, the child, can address the problems that made placement necessary. But, when parents cannot, or will not, make their home safe for the child’s return, other permanent options are sought. The Department of Children’s Services is intentional in seeking dedicated foster parents to care for children in our custody. Through regional recruitment planning and state-wide events we engage potential foster parents.
