Marti & Patricia both have a house full of children. Their homes include a variety of biological, adopted and foster children. Every child in their home, whether they are staying for a day, a month or a lifetime, is considered family. Marti and Patricia both have experience with medically fragile children and large families.
Disa & Greg are the FPCs to contact when you have questions about teenagers! Their experience as caregivers and mentors can help you feel comfortable working with the teenagers in your home. They have creative ideas and suggestions for caregivers who don’t know as much as the teens in the home – who, of course, know everything!!! Disa is a relative caregiver and adoptive parent and Greg is a fictive kin caregiver and coach.
Beth & Julie have experience as both licensed foster homes and relative caregivers. Like Marti & Patricia, they have a house full of biological, adopted and foster children including relative and fictive kin placements. Beth & Julie understand the intricacies of relative licensure and ICPC placements. They know how important, although sometimes difficult, it is to maintain positive relationships with birth families for the benefit of the children.
Nikki & Berenice specialize in babies and toddlers. They can help you navigate the community resources especially important to this age range, ensuring a healthy start for these children. As our travel experts, Nikki & Berenice can help you come up with creative vacations to enjoy with your children. Berenice is also bilingual and assists with translations for our Spanish-speaking caregivers.
The FPC team’s goal is to make sure that foster families and relative caregivers have the support they need to continue providing safe, nurturing and caring homes for the children in Clark County. Remember the FPC team is just a phone call or email away!
