Nexus Cares

Foster parents open their hearts and homes to children in need. Nexus CARES provides the resources they need to make each child’s experience more enjoyable and home-like.

Nexus CARES is a fund available to foster parents licensed by Kindred Family Focus, part of Nexus family of Youth and Family Solutions. In addition to activity fees and “extras,” funds help purchase clothing, medication, special equipment, and other needs children have when placed in foster care.

Nexus CARES also supports the recruitment, retention, and training of foster parents to ensure high-quality homes for children in need, with support for respite care to allow foster parents a break when needed.
