Be the family they need...

Become a Foster Parent

You don't have to be perfect to change a life forever - you just have to be able to love. Today in Kentucky, there are more than 9500 children in the foster care system, an all-time high. These children are searching for a home that can be the safe and stable presence they so desperately need to thrive. Will you answer the call?

We accept applications from all types of families, and the short list of requirements (age, employment status, etc.) can be found in the FAQ section.

There are several different options for getting involved, from weekend "respite" fostering to full-time parenting.
