Foster Parents

Hamilton County Job and Family Services is committed to ensuring that quality local homes are available to children in agency care. To that end, JFS contracts with several private agencies to provide needed foster care services. When a foster home is needed for a child in care, JFS works closely with these agencies to find a licensed home able to meet the child’s need.

When you adopt a child through Hamilton County Job and Family Services, you provide a safe, nurturing and loving home to a waiting child or sibling group. Some of these children have been waiting a long time for a home just like yours.

Many people may be eligible to adopt, regardless of age, income or marital status. HCJFS can help families become eligible to adopt and match parents with a waiting child. To learn more about adoption, and to view the kids available for adoption, click the link below.
