FAQs about Foster Care

Why are children placed in foster care?

Children can be placed in foster care for a wide range of reasons. Most enter care due to experiencing neglect, according to the Indiana Department of Child Services. Many have experienced abuse. All have experienced the trauma of removal. They are placed in foster care while their parent(s)/guardian(s) are given the opportunity, resources, and time to be better prepared to provide safety upon their return.

What does it take to become a foster parent?

First and foremost, it takes a heart that is willing to meet a child where they are and invest in them for however long they are in your home. Beyond that, it requires training, licensure, and commitment. Our teams can walk you through the specific requirements and how they may apply to individual circumstances.

Will I interact with birth families?

Fostering, at its best, is a ministry to the child and their family. Many opportunities exist to demonstrate love and compassion to families. Every circumstance is unique and the amount of interaction can vary significantly. Whenever appropriate, we encourage foster families to interact with birth families an share updates about the care of their children.

What if I struggle with a child in my home?

Parenting is not easy. Foster parenting is also not easy. Through times of triumph and struggle, foster parents need quality, professional support. Through industry leading training and 24/7 access to support you will not walk this journey alone.
