Become a Foster Parent

Children belong in loving families.

Loving families are where children grow and live joyful lives. And we believe every child deserves a safe home where they’re loved and supported. We’re looking for caring people just like you who want to give children in foster care a brighter future. Whether a child is with you for a few days or a few years, the difference you make lasts a lifetime.

We call our foster parents Mentors. They do so much more than give a child a home. They’re advocates, teachers, and family to the children they care for. They open their lives to children with trauma, behavioral challenges, or medical needs. They give them the love they need to grow and reach their full potential.

We’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for caring people who want to help a child live well. If you’re ready to learn more about how to become a foster parent, fill out the form below and a member of our team will reach out.

Mentors are independent contractors and not employees of Sevita.
