Foster and Relative Parents: 

  • Please be in prayer for our agency as we seek to find relatives to care for children/youth in state custody and as we seek to recruit foster parents to care for children/youth.  These children are in desperate need of a home where they will find love and care.  COVID-19 is requiring that we find new, creative ways to recruit.  Please pray that God will help us find new ways to reach out to potential relative foster parents and foster parents.  If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a foster parent, please call 1-800-264-6224 and ask for Intake.
