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
