      Health Care Program for Children in Foster Care

      Local CHDP programs also administer a public health nursing program for children in foster care known as the Health Care Program for Children in Foster Care (HCPCFC). Public health nurses in the HCPCFC work with county child welfare services agencies and departments of probation to address the medical, dental, mental and developmental needs of children and youth in foster care. They provide their professional health care expertise and knowledge of the community to the caseworkers, foster care parents and providers, health care providers and others on the foster care team.

      If you wish to learn more about about foster care, visit the Placer County Foster Care website.
