Our History 


Apex Foster Care was founded in 1999 to offer treatment services to youth in a home environment with highly skilled and nurturing Foster Parents. We are proud to have provided quality foster care services for twenty years. However, we have evolved into an agency that is focused on prevention and ongoing care of those within in our social services system by providing diverse services that meet the unique needs of families in our community. It only made sense in our growth that Apex Foster Care become Apex Family Care. While foster care continues to be a necessity in some cases, we want to ensure that our name indicates that we are an organization that is working to prevent the trauma of removal whenever possible. Strengthening and healing at-risk families is our focus.
