The Foster Care of Maine
Welcome to The Foster Care of Maine website. Although this website has been re-designed many times,'s 10 year online presence has developed into a common link between adoptive / foster parents alike and their relevant information. Please e-mail any ideas or suggestions to the's Admin. Thank you ...


The Foster Care Parents of Maine are a group of dedicated trained people who love children and believe that the best place for children is in a family environment. These same foster parents realize that while a child needs may vary it is still very important to get the best family match. This is why the foster care system is split into groups.  

Currently there are different levels of care in place to help this process happen.  From the traditional to different levels of the therapeutic family.  All these families work extremely hard to meet the needs of the children placed in their homes.  The child's needs will determine the family they are placed in.  It might be the difference between traditional foster home with minimal supervision and/or treatment to a therapeutic foster home with maximum supervision and/or treatment.  

The families main focus is the child.   With supports in place hopes are the child will thrive and grow into a respected person in the community when they become an adult.
