Become a Foster Parent

See What I Can Be.

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.

Morgan is a fierce advocate for kids. Through the uncertainty of the past few months, she has prioritized building powerful relationships with the kids and families she serves.

Previously, those interested in becoming a foster parent were required to attend class in person, but due to current restrictions, training classes have been made virtual so that new classes weren’t postponed.
