Foster a child, change a life.

What Foster Families Say

"[As a foster parent], I feel as though I’ve been given a gift. I’m allowed to paint a brush stroke on the painting of a child’s life. I know that somebody could come along with a black roller, but my work is always only a scratch away, underneath. The reason I started to foster is because I met someone who had been in care and she told me that she ended up in a foster home that truly made a difference. I heard my calling and thought that my daughter and I could truly be that home and now we are."

"These children are right here in our backyard. What would happen to them if we didn’t have foster parents? They have bruises that will last a lifetime, but if you can heal the wounds just a little - if you can give a child a hug or a little extra love - then you can make a difference for the rest of their life."

“[Fostering] is really being on the front line of humanity. It’s really about impacting a life for the future...
“There is a lot of broken people and sometimes that results in broken children. We need a lot of loving homes to receive them in.”

"Fostering is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I foster teens and I see a lot of kids who are really upset and troubled. But you can help them heal and in many cases turn their lives around. Sometimes it’s just the little things, too. I’ve had kids say to me they’ve never sat down with their family to have a meal together. We do that every night - we share our days with one another and have a laugh and for many kids who come to my home that’s something they’re not used to."

“Children have two needs: they need a home and they need parents. A home shelters them ; a home is love; a home is support. Parents are love, support, guidance. They need that. They don’t need to be in a world where no one loves them. They need, essentially, to be loved.”

"Knowing that there are other children who need your parents' attention is hard but teaches you understanding.  Knowing that most of these children are in here needing the love and care of parents makes you a compassionate person.  Knowing they can use the love and help to overcome their struggles makes me a better person."

"Fostering is an opportunity to show care and love to children. As a foster dad, it is great to see new faces enter our home and touch our hearts. Fostering works in our home because we foster as a family."

“Fostering has also exposed me to some of the darker realities that exist in this world. It is sometimes very terrible to hear how difficult the short life of even a young baby has been. This has led me to appreciate how truly fortunate and privileged my stable family life has been. It has also shown me how rewarding it can be to help those less fortunate…”

"I have gained many life and social skills from being part of a fostering family. I've learned to be more empathetic towards people, I've learned that patience is a virtue and also I've learned that being loving and caring goes a long way and that simple gestures can make a child's day."

Nicole, Foster Mom

"Ultimately, the one thing I think I've truly gained from [fostering] is perspective.  This experience has shown me that all issues run deep.  As a member of a fostering family I now know that behind every action is a reason or motivation and one must always look beneath the surface."

Alexandra, Foster Sister

"As a foster Mom, there is so much I would like to share about fostering children. There is nothing that can compare to knowing you have helped a child heal physically and emotionally just by opening up your heart and your front door. Both my husband and myself feel fostering offers us a true sense of fulfillment. Knowing we have made a difference in a child’s life is an extraordinary feeling. We offer children their childhood back to them and create memories that are forever kept in all our hearts."
