People like you are changing children’s lives by opening their homes and their hearts.

We have foster care offices throughout the state with expert and compassionate staff members who are ready to help you take the next steps to being a foster parent.

GET INVOLVED

Become a Foster Parent

When you open your heart and your home to children who have endured trauma, you make it possible for them to hope and dream again. We have requirements prospective foster parents must meet, and to become licensed, individuals must go through 5-7 training classes, pass a background test and have their home inspected. Our staff provides ongoing support and encouragement for those who are sharing the love of Christ in this powerful and life-changing way.

Apply to Live in a Foster Family Home

In addition to the option to care for foster children in your own home, we have opportunities around the state for licensed foster parents to live rent-free in homes maintained by One More Child. Through our innovative Foster Family Home model sibling groups get to stay together in these multi-room, fully furnished homes and individuals who do not currently have the space or accommodations to care for several foster children have all they need to succeed.
