“Foster care is not just about increasing the size of a family, or even doing a good deed.
It’s about helping a child desperately needing love and direction.”
Called to Service?
In today’s world there is an astonishing need for foster parents who are willing to open their hearts and homes to abused, neglected, and traumatized children, teens, sibling groups and children with specialized medical needs. It is through loving foster parents that these children experience the love and safety they need to thrive. Becoming a foster parent is one of the most selfless things a person can do, and it is something to be very proud of at the end of each day.
With an overwhelming number of children in foster care in our communities, there is always a need for more foster families. If you decide to make the commitment and become a foster parent, you will play a crucial role in helping children heal by providing them with stability and teaching them lessons that will last a lifetime and potentially affect future generations.
Providing a home for children in the foster care system will benefit the children by giving them the opportunity to live in a safe, stable and loving family setting. Too many of the children in the foster care system have not had the privilege of experiencing a setting resembling a family in their young lives and can benefit in so many ways from having a sense of belonging to a family.
Sadly, throughout our communities there are children and youth who may never experience a life lived without fear, confusion, and chaos. Foster parenting is a powerful way to be a part of a community that works diligently to provide children and youth with a brighter future. Children in the foster care system need you, they need all of us.
These reasons are just a few to remind of the greater calling in life to help children in need. If you have ever thought about becoming a foster parent, Therapeutic Family Life can help you with the process and provide you with the training and support to help make your journey rewarding.
