Could becoming a foster parent be right for you?
With the state of Washington in a constant state of crisis, the need for foster homes is higher than ever. The number of youth in foster care keeps climbing, upwards of 10,068 as of 2020, and the number of foster homes keeps declining. As of 2021, there are 4,832 licensed foster homes. That’s not nearly enough.
Our agency is a passionate, long-time advocate for changes to our legislative system. These changes make becoming a foster parent easier and more accessible and help provide aide, support and assistance to families interested in fostering.
We have paved the way for successful fostering- are you ready to join our team?
Join us for an information collective discussion on Foster Care, November 15th, from 7-8pm. This event is virtual and a community effort, with different agencies and organizations attending so you can get answers to any and all your foster care questions. This event is free, though registration is required. See the flyer below to register:

Thinking of becoming a foster parent? Now is the time!
You don’t have to be perfect to be a foster parent. You have to love children and be willing to learn about the trauma the youth in our care have endured. And foster parents and respite providers can be people from all walks of life:
- A single adult
- A working couple
- A retired senior
- A stay-at-home mom or dad
These children simply seek support, stability and the chance to heal and grow. Can they count on you?
