Foster Care

Research indicates that children and youth in foster care are far more likely than other children to experience traumatic stress, putting them at risk for negative health, behavioral, educational, and social outcomes. High-quality, evidence-based services that focus on building protective factors can help children face and overcome trauma or adversity, increase resilience, and contribute to improved well-being and positive long-term outcomes.

PCL’s goal in the foster care program area is to support the well-being and development of children and youth in foster care.  Drawing on community recommendations, local data and research, PCL adopted the following programmatic strategies to work toward this goal:

  1. Enhance support and training for foster parents to promote healthy child development.
  2. Individualized support to promote child and youth well-being.
