Forestdale is looking for special people to provide temporary homes, guidance, and love to young people who cannot safely remain with their parents. Your role is to provide children and teens with the emotional support they need to heal and thrive. At the same time, you work with Forestdale to help birth parents make progress towards rebuilding their families. In most cases, foster children reunite with their birth parents; when it is not safe to do so, Forestdale will facilitate the adoption process.
As a foster parent, you will provide what all loving parents do: food, shelter, clothing, stability, discipline and a caring home environment. Foster parents serve as champions for the children in their care, helping them gain self-esteem, achieve in school, and acquire the life skills they need to lead fulfilling lives. If you love and understand children, you’ve already met many of our qualifications.
