About

Is There Room in Your Heart and Family for a Child in Need?

There is a growing need for families willing to open their hearts and homes to children and teenagers who have been removed from their families because of neglect or abuse. These children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crisis and welcome them unconditionally into a caring home.

What You Need to Be a Foster Parent
  1. Be a couple or single adult over the age of 18.
  2. Have a stable housing situation--you can either rent or own your residence--that provides enough for your foster child to grow.
  3. Demonstrate positive parenting skills that include patience, stability, maturity and love of children.
  4. Knowledge of child development is helpful, but not required.
  5. Willingness to work with foster care staff towards achieving identified goals for your foster child.
  6. A sense of humor and a lot of love!
