Foster / Adoption Inquiry & Resources

YOU can make a difference in a child's life!

Richland County Children Services believes every child needs a permanent home. Many of our foster parents adopt the children who are placed with them. Others help children prepare for placement with an adoptive family or relative.

Richland County Children Services will guide you through the foster parenting process from inquiry to licensing.
