Private Foster Care

“Being at Potter has helped me to make friendships easier, helped with my sense of belonging to a family and helped with my self-esteem.” – Foster Child, 17

Private Foster Care

Potter’s Private Foster Care Ministry allows a family to access quality services aimed at preserving the family unit without expensive placements or court involvement. Counseling and case management are provided as the children live in a family setting. No fees are ever charged for these services.

Foster Care

Our foster care program is designed for children ages 6 to 18 years old who need a short- or long-term out of home placement. Children live in a family setting with full-time foster parents who provide a balance of structure and nurture. The goal when possible is always to return the child to their family.

No fees are ever charged for these services, and we accept referrals to this program by families, church leaders, teachers, or anyone aware of a child in need.

Extended Care

If a child in Potter’s foster care program turns 18 while still in care, they have the opportunity to remain in the home while preparing to live independently. They are supported as they complete high school, begin work on a college education, or begin working full time. The focus of our Extended Care ministry is on preparation for independent living.

Transitional Living

When a child in Extended Care graduates from high school, they receive ongoing support as they begin to live independently. Some choose to remain in the home, while others leave the home to work or attend college. All of these young adults receive ongoing counseling, case management and guidance from the families and staff.
