Become a Foster Parent

Make the Difference

Foster parents come from all walks of life, and PATH needs families with various abilities and strengths to care for the variety of children who enter foster care. Foster parents can be single or married, own their own homes or rent apartments, work in or outside of their homes.

Individuals are required to be a minimum age of 21 in order to be considered for foster parenting. Many foster families already have children, but some are caring for children for the first time. There is not a minimum income requirement for foster parents as long as you can take care of your family’s expenses. Most importantly, foster families need to provide safe and nurturing homes for children.

We hope you consider becoming involved in foster care by becoming a foster or family support parent, relief caregiver, adoptive parent or supporting the work of foster and adoptive families in your area. Children need someone special to provide them with love and support – you might be that person.
