There are no unwanted children
just un-found families.
Because a child
can never
have too many people
to love them.
It's not how many children you have, it's how much love you have to give. The risk is great
but the need
is greater.
Someone special is
waiting to meet you.
The risk is great
but the need
is greater.

How to Become a Foster Parent

Our agency’s goal is to give every child a home that will fit their unique needs. For this, we need a variety of parents. FCS works hard to count people in, not out, as foster parents! To learn more, call us today!


Step 1

You call us and we set up a meeting to discuss FCS, our policies, and how we best fit together to match your family’s fostering expectations.


Step 2

You’re given an application at the end of orientation. Once received, the staff will look over the application, call with any questions, and follow up with references.


Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Once you are officially approved, FCS staff will call you with an intake as children are in need of your help.
