Focusing on the long-term
As a foster parent, you will provide more than just a place to stay. Your home may be the first place a child has felt safe in a long time. Children in foster care have experienced abuse, neglect and uncertainty. Boys & Girls Aid serves children and young adults between the ages of 4-21 years old. You will give them:
A focus on long-term stability
Children in foster care have felt abandoned by adults. You will help them feel like they belong somewhere.
Children in foster care have been in unsafe environments for most of their lives. You will be a part of programming that focuses on rebuilding trust in adults.
Tools, training and ongoing support
Children in foster care are behind in many critical areas of school and life. You will help them thrive.
We are here to support you
We believe in our foster parents and we want them to succeed in every way. We offer training, support and paid time off to ensure youth are placed with the best possible foster parents. As a foster parent, you will receive:
Extensive training on how to be successful as a foster parent and understand the needs of children in foster care
24 hour support to answer questions, provide guidance and assist with emergencies so foster parents never feel alone
A community of other like-minded foster parents where people can share ideas, advice and expertise with one another
