For Foster Parents

No one said being a foster parent is easy-but the fulfillment that comes from providing a child with a safe, nurturing environment makes it all worthwhile.

At Foster Forward, we understand the challenges-and joys-of being a foster parent. We value the critical role you’re playing in the life of young people. And that’s why we are here to help.

By connecting you to state and local resources and offering such supports as the Foster Parent Mentor Program, Foster Parent Help Line, and Foster Parent Support Groups, our goal is to assist you as you navigate the child welfare system and manage the health and well-being of children in your care.

Foster Parent Help Line

For assistance during business hours (Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.), please call 401.438.3900 ext. 101.

After hours, please call 800.655.7787.

If someone is not immediately available to take your call, please leave a message, and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
