How to Become a Resource Parent

There are many children in Napa being served by the Napa County Child Welfare Services who cannot safely live with their own families due to abuse or neglect. These children are boys and girls, ages infants through teens. They may be a member of a sibling group or may have special medical, emotional or educational needs. These children need to be with a safe, stable and loving family, sometimes permanently. An Adoptive Parent is someone that provides a legally permanent safe, stable, and loving home for a child or children when it has been determined that they cannot safely be returned to their birth parents or relatives.
