Become a Foster Parent Hero

As a foster parent, you can make a life-enriching difference by providing the loving home many children in our community desperately need.

Without a stable, caring home environment many youngsters don't get a fair chance to lead a happy, productive life. Although they’re not to blame, they're the ones who suffer. You can help change all that but becoming a foster parent.

Today… right now… there are boys and girls of all ages – including brothers and sisters who want to stay together – waiting for a loving home. Waiting for you to be their hero.

Foster care is a system by which a certified, stand-in "parent(s)" cares for minor children or young people who have been removed from their birth parents or other custodial adults by state authority.

Responsibility for the young person is assumed by the relevant governmental authority and a placement with another family is found. Foster care is just a short term alternative while on the way to determining one of the three permanent plans for the child:

  • Reunification with the biological parent,
  • Conversion of the foster home to a legally-permanent guardianship or adoption, or
  • Placement of the child into another legally permanent family.

If you are 21 years of age or older, have a steady income and adequate space in your home, you can qualify!
