Become a Foster Parent

There are thousands of children and teens in California who have been removed from their homes and run the risk of being 'lost' in the system. What these kids need is a person like you to provide unconditional acceptance, comfort and love - and a safe place to begin to heal.


Any family or person regardless of religious affiliation or whether or not they are male or female, single or married or identify as LGBTQ is able to foster or adopt a child or teen.

It’s not uncommon to have reservations about fostering a child or teenager. Many of the families who now serve as foster parents with us had a lot of questions in the beginning. Our foster recruiters are happy to talk with you over the phone or in an Open House meeting to answer your questions.

How to Begin

Call now to talk to someone about becoming a foster or adoptive parent: (877) 488-5437, or email your information to learn more about becoming a foster or adoptive parent. We will provide you with information on the minimum requirements needed to become a foster/adoptive parent and the goals of our program.
