Necco provides therapeutic foster care to children ages birth to 18 and operates programs in Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. Over the years weâ€™ve worked with thousands of kids from all walks of life. Weâ€™ve trained and supported foster parents who run the gamut from homemakers to professionals, from single and same-sex parents to entire families (grandma and grandpa included).
Foster care is just one way that we build families. Although meant to be temporary, the right foster parents can make all the difference in the world to a child who has been removed from his or her biological home on the road to safety and permanency.
