Caring Foster Parents Needed

We are looking for caring foster parents who are interested in making a difference in the life of immigrant children! this is an amazing and unique opportunity to show children new to the United States that we are a loving and accepting country.


A competitive daily stipend is provided, as well as on-going training and support throughout the licensing process and beyond!


What are we looking for in a foster parent?


Compassion: Understand that our kids are going through a difficult transition and need love and support!


Cultural Sensitivity: Embrace the cultural differences that may arise. Be willing to step into someone else’s shoes and to look at life from a different perspective.


Collaboration: We work as a team to make sure our kids are getting the best care possible. This team approach includes our great foster parents! They are essential in helping our kids feel comfortable and safe.


Although we are looking for families interested in children ages 4-17 years old, we are especially looking for foster parents who are interested in accepting children 3 years old and younger. This may be a teen mother and her child or a young child who was separated from their parents by immigration. This is a great way for a stay-at-home parent to make a difference, as these children ideally will not attend school at our program on a daily basis. Of course, we are also in need of foster parents who speak Spanish!
