Every child needs a minimum of one caring adult to offer them support, guidance and love. Secret Harbor identifies and licenses adults who will open their heart and their home to one or more foster kids who need a nurturing, temporary home.
If you cannot care for children full-time or want to get a feel for what being a foster parent might be like, perhaps you might consider being a respite provider for foster kids. Respite care providers are licensed just like full-time foster parents but only provide care a few days a month.
You don’t have to be perfect to be a foster parent. You have to love children and be willing to learn about the trauma the youth in our care have endured. And foster parents and respite providers can be people from all walks of life:
- A single adult
- A working couple
- A retired senior
- A stay-at-home mom or dad
These children simply seek support, stability and the chance to heal and grow. Plant the seeds of change and become a foster parent today!
