Foster Care Through Youth Villages

It's a Calling

Being a foster parent is a calling. For a child, there's nothing more important than to have a place to call home, a family to love and parents who believe in them.

As a foster parent, you can transform the life of a child simply by becoming the first person to have faith in her, the first person to care where he is, the first person to believe in what she can become. If you have enough love in your heart for a child who desperately needs it, please help a child find the way home.

Foster a belief. It's more important than a bed. More life-changing than a meal. It's what a child needs. It's a calling.
