Scholarship Opportunities

For many economically disadvantaged people, the dream of higher education cannot become a reality without financial assistance.  Realizing this challenge, Proteus awards several scholarships to deserving students through a competitive application process.

Proteus, Inc. has given out hundreds of academic scholarships to students since the scholarship program began in 1992.  Funding these scholarships is made possible through a variety of committee fundraising efforts, as well as through the generosity of Proteus employees who contribute their dollars each pay period.

Foster Family Agency

Our Goal

The short-term goal is to meet the physical and emotional needs and well-being of foster children as members of the foster family. This includes integrating the child into his or her foster home and community. The Proteus Foster Family Agency is dedicated to turning those tragic beginnings into happy endings for these children.  The major emphasis is on a therapeutic setting within the Foster Family home designed to meet the educational, social and psychological needs of each child. The children are thoroughly screened to determine appropriateness for placement in a Certified Foster Family Home through a review of educational, social, psychological and psychiatric records.   Those identified as appropriate for Foster Family placement need a caring and loving home, in which the foster children can grow and develop.  The long-term goal is, whenever possible, reunification with the child's natural parents.
