One Step Can Change a Life – Become a Foster Parent!

We want to guide you along your path of becoming a foster parent.

The most important characteristics of a good foster parent are empathy, resilience, perseverance and possessing the caring and commitment to provide a loving home for a child.

It means more than sharing a home. A foster family must make the child feel like part of their own family, with the same rights and responsibilities of any other family member.

Providing a loving environment that is stable, safe and supportive can make all the difference in a child’s life and help facilitate a successful future for that child.

Foster parents provide stable, loving environments in which a child or young person can grow and develop.  You can truly change a life of one of the thousands of children and young people who are in a situation where they cannot live with their biological parents.  Contact us to learn more about how you can become a foster parent in North Carolina.
