Foster Parents Needed
You don’t have to be wealthy or married to be a foster parent. You don’t have to own your home. Our most successful parents have experience with children and a heart for helping people with mental health issues.

Since foster children have been removed from their parents or primary caretakers, they often have special needs. Most are age 5 or older and arrive with emotional and behavioral challenges because of abuse, neglect, and / or abandonment.
We are seeking foster parents who are willing to learn about grief and loss, show compassion, introduce structure, and support the child as part of a team, which may include doctors, therapists, schools, family members, social services and mental health agencies.
We offer 60 hours of training, 24 / 7 support, and competitive compensation. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, gender, marital status or employment status.
Parents must be at least 21 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, and be in good physical and mental health.
Residents of the home must pass a physical examination and tuberculosis (TB) test and, if age 18 or older, pass criminal background check and fingerprint clearance.
The home must pass a walk-through inspection by the agency and a fire inspection.
Our foster parents get 30+ hours of training as they prepare to become licensed and 10 hours annually on topics such as behavior management and trauma.
