The answer is a parent

Have you considered becoming a foster parent? You don’t have to be perfect; you just have to want to help others and give of yourself. If you can offer a foster child love, nurturing, structure and safety, you are — exactly as you are — exactly what the child needs.

In return, you’ll have companionship and love while guiding your foster child toward a successful life. You’ll receive ample training and support from Saint Francis Community Services. And you’ll join the large community of foster parents who have also chosen to help break the cycle of abuse for these children.

Most of the children in need of foster homes are simply good kids coming from difficult home situations. By providing safety, structure and support, you become a much-needed role model — vital to helping them grow into positive, responsible citizens.

Strong families make children's lives better

Since 1945, Saint Francis Community Services has remained dedicated to that simple, singular idea. Thousands of children across the state of Kansas need a place to stay, to belong, to live. You can be a part of positive change for a child in need.

Thank you for considering becoming a foster parent. Whether or not you ultimately decide that foster parenting is the right fit for you and your family, it's people like you who make the world a better place.
