You don’t need to be perfect. Or rich. Or own your own home. What you do need to become a foster parent is a big heart, patience and a desire to make a difference in the life of a child.
Children who need foster care range in age from birth to 22. What they have in common is they all have experienced some sort of trauma. They need a loving home so they can feel safe while remaining connected to their family, school and community.
Each year, Plummer Youth Promise is forced to turn away hundreds of children because there are not enough foster families. We provide training, 24/7 assistance and financial support ($58.45 per day).
All children are referred to Plummer Youth Promise through the Department of Children and Families. If you would like to become a Foster Parent contact MaryLuz Arling.
