Foster children

Welcome to Forever Homes for Foster Kids. For 30 years, our nonprofit has specialized in locating the relatives of immigrant and U.S. foster children. Our work reunites children with their families and gets them out of foster care and on to a better, brighter future.

This position is remote.

We are looking for someone to work with GrantStation to research and identify grants that are appropriate for our work with foster children and someone who also has experience in writing grants. Grants can include those with a focus on:

  • Youth education
  • Well-being of children
  • Sex trafficking prevention
  • Reduction in youth homelessness
  • Children from Mexico, Central and/or South America
  • Children of Hispanic ancestry
Prospect & Grant Research: Researching for grants our organization is eligible for, organizing the needed data to create the grant, writing the grant in a compelling and articulate way and providing deliverable outcomes to report to foundations.

Check out information about Forever Homes for Foster Kids and our founder, Richard Villasana, at https://www.vcstar.com/story/opinion/columnists/2019/01/06/guardian-angel-border/2477474002/. This link goes to some of our success stories about how a child’s life was impacted by being reunited with kin. https://foreverhomesforfosterkids.org/success-stories

As we are a nonprofit and time is valuable, please be professional. Be ready and willing to email or call back when we respond to your inquiry.

This is a volunteer opportunity. Our goal is to raise at least $100,000 in grant funding. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you and having you be part of the solution for many foster children.

Mission Statement

To make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of foster children.


Forever Homes for Foster Kids believes that all U.S. foster children deserve to live happy, healthy lives in a permanent home. By locating foster children's family members, we become the primary method to move these kids out of foster care and into forever homes. For nearly 30 years, our organization has worked with government agencies across the country to find families for immigrant and foster children to create a permanent, forever home.
