The Need

Today there are more than 5,000 children and youth in foster care in Arkansas, but only about 1,600 foster family homes. ARCCC was developed by the Department of Human Services, Division of Children and Family Services to create lifelong connections and build community partnerships in the very communities from which children and youth are removed. Foster Families play a role as reunification partners by providing the typical things any child needs: safety, stability and love while the conditions that caused the placement away from the biological family are being resolved. Foster care is intended to be temporary so in all cases we hope children and youth can be reunified with the biological family.

The most urgent need is for families willing to foster teenagers, sibling groups and children who need special accommodations to meet their unique challenges. Click the "Foster" link above to become a Reunification Partner Today!
