Foster Parents Support
We’re honored to stand by your side
We work with foster parents across the state to get the best health care possible for children and teens in custody with the Department of Children’s Services (DCS). We’re here to help keep them healthy, safe and on track.
A little extra something with SelectKids

You can find more details about your child's benefits in the SelectKids Resource Parent Booklet.
