ECHO EVERY CHILD GIVES DOUGLAS COUNTY RESIDENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT FOSTER CARE

ROSEBURG, OR., The need for foster care in Douglas County is ever-growing. With over 400 Douglas County children needing at least one day in foster care and less that 180 certified foster homes to place them in, our community lacks the needed number of foster homes to ensure children are placed with the most strategic family for their safety and well-being.

Explore Fostering gives anyone the opportunity to ask relevant questions and learn about fostering from local foster parents and DHS caseworkers about the types of care available:

RELIEF ACTIVITIES, (hours – several days), Provides relief to foster parents

FOSTER SHORT/LONG-TERM, (hours, 20 days – 2 years), Provides brief shelter care or an intermediary home

ADOPTIVE FOREVER FAMILY, (permanent care), Provides a child a permanent home

Our goal is to mobilize an unprecedented number of foster families in Douglas County in partnership with the Department of Human Services (DHS). ECHO Every Child is a public/private community effort to encourage community members to love, care for, and support vulnerable children and families in partnership with DHS.

Please join us for our next Explore Fostering Event.
