Respite Care

Do you have a heart to serve children in foster care yet are unable to do so on a long-term basis?  Respite care may be right for you!  Respite care involves watching foster children on a short-term basis in your home, usually for a weekend.  The purpose of respite care is to provide foster families with temporary relief from their fostering responsibilities.  Respite care providers are always needed.

Foster Care

Have you ever considered fostering a child?  Foster parenting provides an opportunity for you to make a significant difference in the life of a child, often when it is needed the most.  Our community has a great need for foster homes.  We are looking for loving, caring people to help care for and nurture these children until they are able to return to their parents’ home.
