GOOD FIGHT BY UNSPOKEN
John 14:18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you
Bountiful Family Services is in need of parents who can foster children in Clark County. BFS'S Foster care program is designed to care and treat children who are at-risk and may need a higher level of care. We have the highest expectations for the foster parents in our program. It is through our parents that we are able to do our best and return the youth back to their least restrictive environment. Many children may come into our program with significant defects in social skills, development delays, impulse control issues, and interpersonal functioning needs. Our parents must be able to teach these skills to the youth in our program while remaining professional, caring and supportive.
Our faith-based program provides employment opportunities for our house parents to become paid basic skill trainers for the children in the home. We can connect you with children to bring into your home, or come live in a family centered and full expense paid agency home.
