Dear Prospective Foster Family,

we are honored to learn of your interest in becoming a member of our CENTRO family, by offering your home and your heart to care for a child in need.  For the next 6 months, CENTRO will be undergoing an important transition in its Intensive Foster Care program, which will have a permanent and very positive impact on our program, our staff and the children we serve for years to come.  If you are interested in becoming a foster parent with us, this process will likely begin in early September, and last approximately 4 to 6 months.  For those families, who have already begun the process with us, have taken MAPPS and we have begun the Home Study, Please expect a redo of this process, in mid-September.  If you have a burning passion for this program, and wish to begin or continue the process but cannot wait, please feel free to reach out to our VP for Family Services, who will share with you the list of collaborating partners, who we believe share similar values with our organization, and can help you get started on this path.  Please know that of utmost importance to CENTRO is the quality of programming and services we provide.  It is for this reason, that we are taking this approach to this very important program.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.
