When it has been determined that a child victim of abuse or neglect cannot remain at home safely, Almost Home, located in Clarke County, offers a secure home-like environment where the child may reside while more permanent plans are being made.
The foster parent(s) at the home coordinate with the children’s social workers to meet the needs of up to six children from ages birth to 18 years of age. The children are enrolled in school and their physical and emotional needs are constantly being assessed. While the child is in foster care, visits with family are generally allowed if this can be accomplished without risk. Although Almost Home is licensed as a foster home by Clarke County DHR, the home will accept referrals through any DHR in Alabama.
