Foster Care

Adult Foster Care

Providers are needed for adult foster care and becomging a provider is easier than you think! 
Are you over the age of 18 and have a spare room in your home? If so, you could provide a supportive, caring home to an adult in need.

Top 5 Reasons to Foster Adults:

  1. Help strengthen your community.
  2. Companionship.
  3. It feels good to help others in need.
  4. Non-taxable income.
  5. Adults have alont time; you do not need to be home 24/7 to be a provider.

Please contact your local county to learn more about becoming a provider. If your county is not list below, please reach out to your county's Health and Human Services Department and let them know you are intersted in speaking to someone about becoming a provider. The need for providers is state-wided.
