Foster Care




THE CHALLENGE... THE CHILDREN...

Abused, abandoned, and neglected, hundreds of children in San Bernardino County are added each month to the growing list of children needing foster parents.

Confused, lonely, and frightened, these children need tender care and understanding in a safe home to restore their confidence and self-worth.

That is where you come in.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE...

Caring people like you, in partnership with Foster Home Services, reach out to these children to provide much needed help.

Foster parents open their homes and hearts for the children in their care until they are reunited with their families of birth.

YOU can make a difference by sharing with a child today.

THE HOPE...

Foster parenting restores hope, renews self-confidence, and gives a child a chance for the future.

It takes time, and it takes effort to be a foster parent. But the many stories of foster children growing up to become successful people and caring parents themselves, make it all worthwhile.

By providing for these children a loving and accepting family, you offer them a chance for the future.

THE REWARDS...

Your greatest reward as a foster parent may well be the CHALLENGE of caring for a child not born to you, and the chance to make a difference.

Companionship, the joy of sharing, the smiles, the hugs, the "thank you's," the friendships, and the memories are a bountiful return on your investment of time, energy and emotions in caring for these children.

THE PROCESS...

Foster parenting involves people who understand the needs of the children and who care. They are young, old, single, married, with or without children. All kinds of people for all kinds of children.

Be one of those special people and share your heart and home with a foster child. Foster Home Services will train and assist you to become a successful foster parent.
