Due to COVID 19 More children Need Foster Parents - Become a Foster / Resource Parent

Save to Favorites

New Alternatives, Inc. Foster Family Agency

  • 10 people are interested

Our office is in Escondido but we NEED certified foster/resource homes for children, ages 0-21 THROUGHOUT SAN DIEGO COUNTY.

Due to COVID-19 and the quarantine more children are coming into foster care at a higher rate.

We are looking for compassionate and loving adults; single, married or partnered (21 years and older) willing to open their hearts and homes to children who need a healing family experience. It takes a variety of families to provide support to children of all genders, sexual orientations, ethnic group and ages in need of parents who will be sensitive to them.

If you ARE NOT READY FOR A FULL COMMITMENT . . . become certified and offer RESPITE CARE. What is respite care? Open your home for a weekend or a week at a time. This allows Foster Parents a window of opportunity for rest or vacation.

Our agency works hard to support foster/resource parents. We make training easy (Online and in-person). We come to you for the entire certification process and there is no charge to the applicant for the certification process.

One person can make a profound difference in the life of a child.
