Who Are Our Foster Parents?

Eliada’s Foster Care Parents come from all walks of life! We have single parent homes and two parent homes.  We have grandparents who become foster parents bringing success to a new generation of children. We have people who have never had children but feel a deep commitment to working with them. Our parents provide that genuine love and support that our foster children are in need of!

The Benefits of Foster Care

The Foster Care system enhances the well-being of children and families by attending to the needs of the child, their family and the foster family. Children in need of foster homes are often from right here in Western North Carolina. They range in age from 0-21 years and experience a range of emotional and behavioral issues. These behaviors are addressed in a nurturing family environment where children are taught to concentrate on their strengths and enhance their self-esteem.

Eliada’s programs promote permanent family living arrangements for children through: reunification, guardianship, independent living, and adoption.
