OUR MISSION IS...
To recruit, train, and license foster homes in Indiana for the care of children by providing the least restrictive, most family-like setting available to children who are referred to our agency.
To engage and strengthen Indiana foster families to support children in their journey to reconciliation and recovery from abusive and/or neglectful home environments.
To best serve the needs of each child by providing services to the children and foster parents through education, resource building, counseling, and around the clock case management services.
YOUR HELP IS VITAL...
On any given day, there are over 500,000 U.S. children in foster care. Every year 2,000 U.S. children die from abuse or neglect. Are you willing to make a difference? You can change the life of a child, become a foster parent today!
The children referred to Debra Corn Foster Care are considered “difficult to place”. These children have been made wards of the court or may be in placement through the juvenile justice system.
Most children needing care have been removed from family situations in which they have been physically abused, neglected, or sexually abused. Children suffering from symptoms of abuse and neglect, most notably, display strong emotions in response to their home life circumstances. These emotions present as behaviors including grief, anger, acting out, or abusing substances.
Children in care may range in age from infancy to 21 years of age. The length of stay for each child will vary depending on child and family progress. Some children will be reunified with biological parents or family members, some will become available for adoption, and others will work toward independent living or emancipation.
