When family challenges impact a child’s safety, we work closely with parents to help them overcome the obstacles which brought the child into the child welfare system. In cases where reintegration is not possible, we utilize our strong network of foster families to provide the love and stability needed.

Our first priority is always the child's' safety and well-being. Our Glove House team of case workers, social workers and advocates work alongside the biological families to help them succeed when the goal is reunification. 

Caseworkers through Glove House work with and offer assistance to biological parents to complete necessary steps to bring the child safely into the biological home.

At times, these efforts are not ultimately successful leading to children remaining in foster care or being freed for adoption.
