Great Heights Foster Care, Inc.
Great Heights Foster Care, Inc. is a licensed Child Placement Agency (CPA) and established 501(c)(3) non-profit in the State of Georgia. Great Heights is contracted with the state to provide services to children and youth (ages 0-21) in foster care who, for one reason or another, cannot safely remain in their primary caregiver’s home. We evaluate and train individuals and couples interested in being approved as foster parents and commit to work in the best interest of the child and ensure their safety, permanency, and well-being. Fundraising, community outreach, and awareness efforts are also a part of Great Heights' mission to send children into the world ready to soar.
"The courage to soar to great heights is inside all of us."
FOSTER CARE & ADOPTION
Great Heights seeks to offer foster families quality support and communication with love and integrity so that we can efficiently provide child placement services to foster children and youth.
The Child Welfare Information Gateway defines foster care as "a temporary service provided by states for children who cannot live with their families."
Great Heights is invested in welcoming, training, and approving foster parents to care for children and youth in the custody of the state, ages 0-21, with various needs and backgrounds. Great Heights seeks to support foster parents in a warm and loving environment created with integrity, ethics and a knowledge of the system and child development.
If you are interested in learning more about fostering we would love to hear from you; contact information is in the "contact us" section.
The primary goal during foster care is almost always to have a child or youth reunited with the family members from whom they were removed; however, the reality is that sometimes this is not possible. Adoption from foster care becomes the focus of a child or youth's case when it is determined that they can no longer be safely reunited with the family they were removed from, despite the best efforts of all involved.
In such cases Great Heights will aid in the facilitation of the adoption process for families adopting a child in the foster care system.
