Out of home care

Out of home care provides a safe, supportive and therapeutic care environment for a child or young person while working towards either bringing a family back together or supporting children and young people in another safe and stable placement option.

Churches of Christ Care is one of Queensland’s largest providers of out of home care, working with around 3,000 children and young people each year. With services in Brisbane, Mackay, Bundaberg, South West Queensland, South East Queensland, Moreton Bay, Townsville, Fraser Coast an Mt Isa our out of home care services include:

We recruit and support over 900 dedicated and compassionate foster and kinship carers. Working closely with staff, carers provide a vital safety net to children and young people who often come from backgrounds of abuse and neglect.

Churches of Christ Care works closely with the Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to recruit, train and asses foster carers, who are continually supported, monitored and re-approved every one to two years.
