You don’t have to work in child welfare or be a parent to help children in foster care. There are lots of ways to put your valuable abilities to work.
You can be the difference in the life of a child in foster care!
Ways you can help:
Become a mentor or tutor for youth in foster care.
► Foster Family Driver
Assist foster families by driving children to appointments or to school. Must be 18 with a valid driver’s license and insurance.
► Foster Family Sitter
Help provide foster parents with short-term child care.
► Foster Care Provider
Provide a temporary home to a young person in foster care and help restore hope as they wait to reunite with their families.
► Foster to Adopt Provider
Open your home to a child in foster care with the willingness to adopt if family reunification is not possible.
► Community/Business Leaders
A background check is required for all roles working with children. Volunteer is responsible for the cost of the background check.
