Foster and Adopt
Fostering and adopting changes lives forever. It just might be the most important thing that ever happens to some of the children in the Home.
Foster families are needed to care for children and teens throughout Kentucky. Foster care is temporary care for children and adolescents who cannot safely remain with their birth families.
Foster parents come from all educational and financial backgrounds. It all starts with a desire to help and the willingness to provide patience and love to a child in need.
Don’t put it off any longer — change a life.
