Become a Foster Parent

Interested in becoming a foster parent?

The time is now. Kids are waiting.

Every day, youth are turned away from the opportunity to live in a safe, loving home due to a lack of foster families. Please consider providing a foster home for kids in your community.

There is no typical CEDARS foster family. Our foster families include parents with children at home, single adults, couples hoping to adopt, and empty nesters. To help, all you need is a stable home, an open heart, and a willingness to reach out to a child in need.

Why do other foster parents choose CEDARS?

CEDARS provides exceptional training—far above and beyond other agencies in the area. As well as a support team that is always available to you—24 hours a day, 7 days a week.               

What CEDARS Foster parents are saying:

  • "It's almost like having a rapid response team. Telephone calls and emails are answered immediately and I never had to wait more than ten minutes. Every staff member is personable and easy to work with."
  • "They have been a constant for my foster children in the storm of uncertainty that surrounds them."
  • "I see CEDARS staff trying beyond the norm to do everything possible to benefit the children in their care. I love the way they show so much respect and listen to the foster parents."
