Robeson County Department of Social Services is committed to providing stability for all youth in foster care. Foster parenting involves providing a nurturing and supportive home to a child or sibling group on a temporary basis until the child or sibling group can be reunified with their prior custodian, placed with relative, or as a last option, placed for adoption.
Currently, there are over 250 children in Robeson County’s foster care system. Of those 250, approximately 50 children have a permanent plan of Adoption. In Robeson County, over 50 % of our foster care youth are adopted by their foster parents.
The decision to become a foster parent or adoptive parent is one that may take time and consideration before you commit to the process. Families interested in becoming a foster parent or an adoptive parent should contact a local department of social services in their county to learn more about each agency’s process.
