About our website

Then and Now

Over the last decade our old website adhered to the HTML 4 specification in an effort to make sure that every browser could access our content. Times have changed and we really wanted our new website to take advantage of all the features of modern web browsers. Our new site adheres to the HTML5 specification and takes advantage of CSS3 and Javascript, as well as the jQuery and other frameworks. This allows for new ways to present information and also lets our content work well on tablets and cellphones.

Which Browser?

Our new website should work on many different browsers without any difficulty. Some browsers such as Internet Explorer present some unique challenges, but we have done our best to address them.

FAMILY SERVICES

The KidsKare Agency provides professional services to individuals transitioning from our residences or foster care programs, back to their family setting. We also provide services to families in need, who may not have an individual placed in one of our programs. We offer pre-placement support, where we can provide resources and strategies to circumvent the need for formal placement, or to facilitate the transition into one of our programs.
