The children’s permanency team is looking for a person or family who understands that the children have individual responses and triggers and need a family that is receptive to collaborating with community partnerships and resources and who will support the children to feel safe and secure as they process some their past issues. It will be important for a family to demonstrate positive conflict resolution and manage overall household relationships well. Most importantly, the team feels that the best fit for these amazing kids would be someone that understands the impact of childhood trauma on children; someone that is flexible and nurturing to help them during times of struggle, and supportive of all the children’s great qualities, while empowering them to flourish!
