Become a Resource Family

Are you looking to make an important impact in your community while at the same time providing temporary or permanent care to the county’s most vulnerable population? Do you wish to make a positive effect on the lives of children? If so, we would like to encourage you to become a Resource Family in Nevada County. Although being a Resource Family is a significant commitment, the rewards you will receive from this endeavor will be considerable. Resource Families believe that every child is worthy and deserves a safe and stable home. Resource Families open their home for children that are in need of temporary care and safety. Being a Resource Family is an incredibly rewarding job that we invite you to be a part of.
