become a foster parent
There is an ongoing need in Kansas for families willing to share their hearts and their homes with children who require temporary foster care. The primary goal of foster care is reunification with the biological family and most foster children will eventually return to their biological parents. In some cases, reunification is not possible and there is an ongoing need for forever homes for children in foster care, especially teens.
Answer these four SIMPLE QUESTIONS:
- Can you provide a temporary home for a child and help them move towards permanence?
- Can you accept a child as a member of your family?
- Can you work in partnership and through good communication to help children reach their goal?
- Can you help a child learn healthy behaviors?
If you answered yes, please contact KFAPA! We will walk you through the process from the beginning, to having a child placed in your home, and beyond.
