Foster Care: A Support to Families, Not a Substitute for Parents
Watch this recorded webcast to learn what it means to build a complete system of foster care as a support to families, not a substitute for parents.
In this recorded webcast, Children's Bureau Associate Commissioner Jerry Milner leads a conversation with the parent, agency representative, and resource parent featured in Mosaic 2: Building Bridges From One Family to Another, part of the Family Mosaic Discussion Guide and Video Series. The dialogue helps illustrate how comprehensive supports for families in an agency’s foster care program can lead to timely, stable, and lasting reunification. The Associate Commissioner’s remarks illuminate what it means to build a system of foster care as a support to families, not a substitute for parents.
