Foster or Adopt...
A Choice That Changes Lives

Express your interest in fostering today, and begin the process to the journey tomorrow.


Get Started

Every year, a quarter of a million children
come into foster care in this country.

Many children will be placed in group homes or other group residential settings because there are simply not enough foster families to care for all of the children



Visit adoptuskids.org for more information.

Foster parents play a critical role in
helping children heal.

They show children stability and teach them life lessons that last a lifetime. – Adoptuskids.org

Take the First Step

Every child deserves a home

 

Foster parents enjoy a challenging, yet rewarding journey as they impact a child’s life in a profound way. A successful foster parent:

  • Loves and cares for their foster child in a way that promotes a healthy, strong relationship.
  • Works toward the best interest of their child and encourages their child to interact with their biological family.
  • Advocates for their child by seeking supportive services and opportunities, and
  • Proactively develops themselves by learning and expanding their parenting techniques.

Your success, life experiences, resilience, and wisdom have shaped you into the healthy and happy adult you are today. That is all you need to be a foster parent!
