How Our Program Works

The Jonathan’s Place Foster Care program focuses on three key areas: recruitment, training, and support.



We strive to find high-quality caregivers for the children we serve. The intended result of recruitment is to find a family who is motivated and committed to providing a safe and stable environment for a child. The knowledge and skills of the foster parents are critical to the well-being of the children in their care.



Our training takes a comprehensive approach and requires families to complete 40 hours of pre-service training and 20 hours of supervised observation in our emergency shelter or foster homes. Families complete annual training hours to continue their education. Our training is based on curriculum specifically designed for Jonathan’s Place.



After a child is placed with a family, the goal is to provide unequaled support for the entire family. Our experienced and professional case managers are committed and available to the families. They also provide in-home services, identify community resources, and act as the liaison between the family and the CPS caseworker.
