Support for NTPS students in foster care

  • What is Foster Care?

    Foster care is the temporary placement of children with families or individuals outside of their own homes into approved relative care or licensed homes. The goal of foster care is to provide for the physical, emotional, and social needs of children in a “substitute” family setting until the child can be reunited with their own family.
