NC Kids Needs Your Help!
is a statewide, comprehensive resource provided by the North Carolina
Division of Social Services through a partnership with the University
of North Carolina at Greensboro. Since 1999, NC Kids has provided information
and referral services for prospective foster and adoptive families,
social workers, and public and private adoption agencies. Our mission
is to improve the placement outcomes for the children of North Carolina
awaiting adoption. We do this by acting as an advocate for the children
and families we serve.
of this effort, NC Kids is using a survey to collect information on
the type of experiences, both positive and negative, that foster parents
have throughout our state. The results from this survey will be provided
to the Policy and Initiatives Team of the Childrens Services Section
of the N.C. Division of Social Services for discussion.
NC Kids cannot resolve specific issues raised by those who respond to
this survey, we can assure you that the survey does represent an important
opportunity for foster parents to have their voices and opinions about
the child welfare system heard. By filling out and sending in this survey,
you will be giving North Carolina the information it needs to make systematic
improvements that will benefit foster families and the children they
also guarantees that any identifying information you provide will
not be released to DSS unless you authorize us to do so. Thank you
in advance for you participation in this survey.
