Intrinsic Home Care, Inc provides foster care services to help children who cannot be cared for by their own families to have a safe, nurturing, stable, and temporary environment. We have devoted ourselves to providing care to the most vulnerable children in our community, placing them in our safe, loving foster homes, and helping them find foster parents that will care for them unconditionally. We have partnered with families around Indiana who can offer these children a stable, loving, and nurturing home where they can gain confidence, build emotional strength, and discover their full potential.
Our foster care services are available to children identified as “in need of services” by the Indiana Department of Child Services. Children in our foster care may live with unlicensed or licensed relatives, as well as licensed, non-relative foster parents.
You can be a foster parent, too. We will guide you through the process of foster care from beginning to end. Once you met all of the requirements for licensure, a standard foster family home license will be issued by DCS so you can provide care for appropriately matched children in need of a foster home placement setting.
