Website A Place To Call Home
When you become a part of the A Place to Call Home family, you experience a relationship where quality and character matters. Our priority is ensuring the success of our families and always keeping the child or adult at the forefront of all our decision making. Quality and timely service is our trademark, but providing safe and loving homes for our children and adults is our passion.
A Place to Call Home was founded in 1998 with one thing in mind: to make a difference in the lives of children and adults with special needs and disabilities.The need for quality and traditional families to provide care is tremendous as the number of individuals in need of foster and adoptive homes, child developmental homes and adult out of home care has almost doubled since 2008.As an agency, we recruit, train and submit home studies for licensure and certification of families and individuals who meet the required qualifications. A Place to Call Home conducts the renewal process, provides monitoring, facilitates placement and offers ongoing training and support.With a large pool of resources, our families have an extensive amount of support. We act as advocates not only for the children and adults, but for their foster, adoptive, or developmental home providers as well.
