Reduction of Multiple Placements: Seven Homes'
primary goal is to reduce the number of placements a
foster child has once they enter the foster care
system. In North Carolina only 58% of children who
had been in care 12 months or less have experienced
2 or fewer placements. This percentage is the second
lowest in the U.S. The National Standard is 87%,
Since 2007, Seven Homes has achieved 100% stability
with zero placement disruptions. Seven Homes has
worked diligently to eliminate the destructive
practice of moving children from home to home.
Amount of Time a Child Spends in Care: Seven Homes is
committed to helping reduce the time a child spends in the
foster care system. The goal is to have permanency within a
year. To help meet this goal Seven Homes believes in stability
of placement, aggressive uses of collaborative services, and
direct communications with birth families.
Establishment of a Permanent Family: Seven Homes believes a
child needs a permanent family that will provide the stable,
safe, nurturing and loving home all children need in order to
grow and reach their full potential. Seven Homes believes this
family can be found with the birth parents or relative placement
within the child’s birth family. If this is not possible, then
an adoptive family is our final goal.
Living: Seven Homes also works with less unfortunate
children that do not have a permanent family and can not find an
adoptive family. These children will turn 18 and age out of the
Social Services system. Annually it is estimated that 25,000
children nationally will age out of the system without a
permanent home or family to help support them. To help children
through this period in their lives Seven Homes provides
independent living skills training and continued support after
they leave care.

Child Care Placement
Placement of a child
into a foster family is a partnership between
the birth family, County Departments of Social
Services, and Seven Homes.
This program is a partnership between the parent,
child care provider, and 7 Homes. Services are provided in licensed foster homes, where foster
parents receive ongoing training and guidance
from 7 Homes to assure the highest-quality care
for the children placed in their homes. Children that have to be
placed separate from their birth-family benefit from
the stable, structured, nurturing home environment
provided by our foster families.

the child, including an adoptive family in most
