Be a child’s bridge of hope to a brighter future.
Be a foster parent.
Your Journey to Making a Difference to Kids Begins Here…
The reasons why children require foster care vary, but the need stays the same.
Here’s why you are needed by a foster child…
Children may come from birth families where addiction is causing an unsafe environment. Domestic and other types of abuse may also be factors. Other times, economic hardships overwhelm parents or guardians, and they need help from organizations like ours.
Whether you foster for less than a year or for a longer term, you can be a bridge of hope for children who need the love, stability, and guidance you can provide. For some kids, the family environment you offer might be the safest they’ve ever known. That in itself can be the greatest gift to a child in your care.
Love is the main quality of a great foster parent.
And our foster parents come from every kind of background… whether you are single, married, empty-nesters, or identify as LGBTQ. You may have children of your own, or you may not. What’s important is your desire to become a foster parent, and that you have the support you need to be successful in that role.
Our unique screening process is designed to ensure you are equipped with everything you need to provide a nurturing and secure environment for your foster child. It’s a process of discovery, and one that is both revealing and empowering. It’s the beginning of a true partnership between you and Centerstone Foster Care and lays a foundation for you to build on your self-knowledge, skills and foster parenting goals.
