Make a Positive Impact

When you become a foster parent you:

  • Open your heart to children that need you
  • Provide a safe, supportive and stable family environment
  • Allow a child to benefit from the nurturance that your home can provide
  • Advocate for educational advancement and enrichment
  • Enhance their social development through exposure to community resources

Benefits of Becoming a Foster Parent

  • Make a significant difference in a child’s future
  • Form life-long relationships with the children that you assist
  • Receive on-going training and support
  • Financial assistance, depending on child’s clinical needs.

Potential foster parents must attend training, which is typically held on three consecutive Saturdays. The Center can make alternate arrangements if you aren’t able to attend weekend sessions.

We will take the time to learn about your family’s background and what you hope to achieve through fostering a child. We also run background checks and conduct home studies.
