Children in the Stark County foster care system have often experienced trauma, neglect or abuse sometime in their young lives. By supporting the unique needs of this vulnerable population, educators, foster families and social workers can help offset the effects of these negative experiences.
Professional mental health providers in our community offer many different treatment options, so no matter a child’s situation or individual emotional needs, help is available. Find family, individual and faith-based resources to help improve the resiliency and well-being of children in foster care.
For children in foster care, United Way provides mental health information and referrals. Just dial the 211 hotline for access to affordable counseling and support services.
