Become a Foster Parent Today

If you've ever considered opening up your home to kids in the foster care system, Children's Home is here to help! Our team is constantly seeking out new homes to place kids from as young as newborn to as old as 21.

To be a foster parent, you must become licensed but this is free of charge and Children's Home will walk you through the whole process.

Here's a few qualifications to start with:

  • Must be 21 years of age or older
  • Must have safe housing and adequate space for a child
  • Must pass a background check and simple medical examination
