Thousands of children need the warmth and guidance of a family. Children enter foster care because they have been abused or neglected and may feel frightened or rejected and need help dealing with their feelings. Foster parents are needed for all children but especially for teens and children with special medical conditions. Why not consider opening your heart and your home to these special children.
Older children need stable homes and loving families to help them transition into adulthood. There is a critical need for foster homes for teens. These children often have had a difficult and traumatic history. Many youth in care have missed the joys associated with childhood. They face becoming adults with limited skills and no family connections. They need a parent, mentor, advocate and best friend. You may be their last chance to be a son or daughter in a home setting.
