Where to start?

1. Encounter

If you’re new to foster care, sign up for an Encounter.

Our two-hour information session will introduce you to the need for, and the ways to be involved with Christian foster care. You will learn about the licensing process while considering the call God is putting on your life to care for children in their greatest time of need. This is where everyone starts the journey of becoming foster or respite parents. Sign up for an event near you today!

This multi-day training is for foster and respite families and meets the state-mandated requirement for approval and licensing.
