Become a foster parent
Every year, hundreds of children enter Oregon’s foster care system. These children are unsure about their futures and the relationships in their lives. They have an immediate need for stability and safety. They need a supportive adult in their life.
Through our foster care program, you will provide a temporary arrangement for children who are unable to remain in their home due to abuse, neglect, or another issue that has created an unsafe environment. You will care for children until they can return home, be placed with a relative, or moved to a more permanent living situation through adoption.
You are providing a necessary resource to these youth, regardless of the length of time they spend with you. You will create a sense of belonging and make a significant impact in their lives. Your home may be the first place a child in foster care has felt safe in a long time. You will make a difference!
