Become a Foster Parent

How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in foster care!

Every day we have children of all ages in Rhode Island who are in need of safe, nurturing homes and competent caregivers. Some babies, children and youth need shorter term placements - emergency or respite care, and others require stable longer term arrangements. All types of foster care are desperately needed, and the positive impact that our caregivers have on the lives of these children is enormous.
