Our foster care recruitment team facilitates these meetings for 10-20 individuals and couples. Just like you, the participants are there to learn if becoming a foster parent is right for them. We’ll give a short presentation followed by a question-and-answer session. Some of the topics we cover include:

  • The needs of children in foster care
  • The role of foster parents in reuniting children with their families
  • Details about the certification process
  • Requirements
  • The support you can expect from us
  • Testimonials from current foster parents

We’re sorry, but child care is not available at this event.

Yes! Please contact us at at least one week prior to the meeting date to discuss any necessary arrangements.
