At a Meritan Foster Care home, children receive more than the necessary medical or behavioral treatment.
Every day they are exposed to basic human warmth and affection, allowing them to grow strong through experiences that most people take for granted.
Training is also a key to the success of a placement in the modern foster home. Meritan provides support and instruction to foster parents from trained professionals. Our staff is always available to answer questions and to respond immediately to any concerns from the foster family or children.
