Foster & Kinship Parent “Warm Line”
DCS Warm Line
The Foster Parent Warmline is available for kinship families and licensed foster parents. While not an emergency number, Warmline staff can assist with information, authorizations for services, timely communication, and support.
It is not intended to discourage or replace direct and regular communication between the DCS Specialist and the out-of-home caregiver.
You can reach the Warmline by calling 1-877-KIDSNEEDU (1-877-543-7633) and selecting Option 3. Warmline staff are available during business hours. Callers also have the option of leaving a voice message.
