Have you been curious about foster parenting and wondered if you and your family are ready to open your heart and home to a child in crisis? There are many things to consider, so we’ve created new, FREE resource guides to help you find out if fostering is right for you.
The free guides include:

While the initial development and launch of these resources is intended to support individuals in Kansas, Nebraska, Kentucky and West Virginia (states where KVC provides foster care services), the information is valuable to anyone considering fostering and we encourage you to download them!
Foster parents are needed in every community so that children can remain close to what is familiar to them, especially their families and schools. Foster care is a safe place that gives a child and his or her family an opportunity to resolve conflicts or disruptions and learn healthy skills so the child can safely return home. Foster parents provide a safe and caring environment, and help ensure that a child continues to receive the education, medical care and support they need to thrive. They also play an important role in helping children recover from the trauma and/or neglect they have experienced. More than half of children who enter foster care eventually safely reunite with their families. Learn more about foster care and the need for foster parents on our website.
