Foster parents provide alternative living arrangements when it has been determined that a child cannot remain in the home of his/her biological parents.
CONCERN provides a variety of supportive services to foster families such as compensation, training, and respite. CONCERN matches children with families who are able to best meet their needs.
It takes a special person to become a foster parent. Opening your home to children who need your love and care is a significant contribution to making a difference to the lives of these children. Through your support and commitment you open many doors for children allowing them to look forward to brighter futures and a productive adulthood.
The first steps to becoming a foster family include attending an informational meeting, completing a formal application, and participating in several interviews with a recruiter. The recruiter assists families in completing all of the necessary paperwork and answering a family’s questions about foster care.
