About the Event
Join us virtually on September 7th from 1 PM - 2 PM for Every Child's Virtual Foster Parent Information Session: LGBTQ+ Fostering!
Be the reason it gets better. Become a foster parent! This information session will focus on LGBTQ+ fostering, but will also discuss our training schedule, the steps it takes to become an Every Child foster parent, and how children enter the foster care system.
Foster care provides safe, loving homes for children and youth of all ages who have been temporarily removed from their birth homes. Our resource (foster) families are vital partners in providing care, support, and a safe, nurturing environment for the children placed with them. Our foster care program certifies and trains resource families and supports families as they care for the children. Our goal is to assist in reunifying these children with their family of origin whenever possible. When that is not possible, we help find children a permanent home.
We are experienced in placing youth who need specialized foster care due to medical conditions, developmental disabilities, or behavioral challenges. In addition, we are trained to address the needs of youth in the LGBTQ+ community.
