Become a Foster Parent

Opening up your home to help a child in crisis is certainly a very special gift. But our foster and adoptive parents tell us that caring for a KidsPeace child makes a positive difference in their lives, too. Because with KidsPeace, it's all in the match & we take extra care to place just the right kids into just the right homes. Once we've found the right match for both you and the child, we provide you with special training to meet the specific needs of that child.

We then provide professional, round-the-clock support from a caseworker who knows both you and your child.

Our smaller offices and lower caseloads ensure effective communication and ongoing help when you need it, whenever you need it.

If you would like to enrich a child s life while discovering riches in your own, consider becoming a KidsPeace foster parent. You don't need to be wealthy, you don't need to be married, you don't need to have kids of your own and you don t need a Ph.D. in child psychology. What you do need is a desire to provide a safe, nurturing environment to a child.
