Foster In Your Home

As a Volunteer Community Foster Parent, you offer to provide safety, stability, and loving care to children in your own home without financial compensation. This selfless work allows you to integrate a foster child into your home and life in order to support their developmental and social skills. Volunteer Community Foster Parents usually care for children who will be with Casa de Esperanza for a lengthy period of time. In rare cases where it is impossible or inappropriate for a child to return to their birth families, Casa de Esperanza works to prepare the child and a prospective foster-to-adopt family for a successful adoption. 

Path to becoming a Licensed Foster Parent with Casa de Esperanza
