Foster care

Foster parents are as diverse as the children they care for. A foster parent may be single or married, or partnered, have children or not have children, rent or own their home. What they share is a concern for children and a commitment to help them through tough times. They provide critical temporary care and nurturing to children in crisis.

If you are a foster parent or would like to become one, this information can help guide you to important resources, programs and services. Learn the steps to become a foster parent.
