Catholic Charities actively recruits and licenses families and single adults who are willing to open their hearts and homes to children in the state's Child Protective Services. We supervise care and support foster families to assure the needs of foster children and our families are met.
We welcome families from diverse cultural, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
Foster parents receive a monthly stipend to assist in the care of a foster child. Medical, dental and daycare costs are covered through the state.
Children range in age from newborn to 18 and are from diverse ethnicities and family backgrounds. Some families work best with teens, others with infants and toddlers, or sibling sets, while others are skilled at working with medically fragile children or with children who have special needs. We help assess talents, skills and desires of each family to assure a successful match.
