You can make a difference:
Foster care is an opportunity to provide a safe haven to children who range in age from birth to 17, from all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
The role of a foster parent:
Foster parents are essential to providing stable, temporary homes that protect and nurture these children in the hope of eventual reunification with their birth parents. Foster parents are 24-hour care providers and role models. They provide food and shelter and transportation to appointments. They are part of a team, working cooperatively with birth parents.
Services for foster families include:
- Ongoing support
- Educational training
- 24-hour on-call service
- Clothing allowance for child (twice a year)
- Coverage of children’s critical needs that cannot be met by any other funding source
