Being a Foster Parent is pure love

Have you ever had the tug on your heart to love a child that is not yours?

For Goodness Sake Posted on Apr 24, 2018
There are nearly 9,000 children currently in foster care in Washington State. Children enter foster care through no fault of their own. Most children in foster care have endured some form of abuse/neglect which made conditions unsafe to remain in their home.

Thankfully, there are caring adults who choose to become foster parents. Foster parents are willing to open their hearts and homes to the children in foster care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Foster parents provide the safety, love and nurturing that every child deserves, at a time when that child needs them the most.

FosteringWA recruits, and supports, foster parents all over Eastern Washington. FosteringWA is extremely thankful to all of the foster parents who have answered the call to care for our most vulnerable citizens, children who have experienced abuse/neglect.

If you live in Eastern Washington and have ever wondered about how to become a foster parent, please call 1-888-KIDS-414. All are welcome to inquire but foster parents are especially needed who speak Spanish and/or are willing to care for sibling groups, children aged 6 and older (especially teens), children with special needs, and children who identify as LGBTQ.
