Is There Room in Your Heart and Home for a Child in Need? There is a growing need for families willing to open their hearts and homes to children and teenagers who have been removed from their families because of neglect or abuse. These children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crisis and welcome them unconditionally into a caring home. Children in foster care range in age from infants to teenagers and typically remain in your care for at least a few months
What Qualities do Foster Parents Need? Foster parents can be couples or single adults over the age of 21 who are committed to providing a loving home for children and provide them with ample space to grow. Foster parents need to have positive parenting skills, patience, stability, maturity, and a love of children. It is also helpful to know and understand childhood development. Foster parents work with staff from community agencies toward identified goals for the children in their care.
