Fostering Futures


A CHJC Community-Based Program

CHJC’s Fostering Futures Program provides both long and short-term services for youth unable to be cared for by their birth families or legal guardians.

  • While receiving supportive care, counseling, and supervision, youth participating in the Fostering Futures Program are able to live within family homes, attend public schools, and be active members of their communities.
  • Foster Families play a vital role in helping youth placed in their care achieve their goals.
  • All prospective Foster Parents are required to complete a certification program, with trainings once a week for ten weeks. To ensure a continuum of learning, once certified, Foster Parents are required to attend ongoing trainings.
  • CHJC offers on-going Foster Parent trainings
