Become A Foster Parent

Resource Parent (Foster/ Kinship Care) Program

CSI provides out-of-home placement for children and youth from birth to 21 years old. The children are referred for placement through Philadelphia DHS/Community Umbrella Agencies. Resource parent refers to either foster or kinship (related to child) parent who provides a temporary home to a child or sibling group while services are provided to the family to work toward reunification. Resource parents will also be asked to help mentor the birth parent during this process.
