All across Rhode Island there are children who need foster homes. Whether due to physical abuse, mental health problems or a family emergency, at times foster care is necessary.
Can you help?
Foster parents receive the support of a team of clinicians and case managers, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They respond to any phone call within 10 minutes.
Foster parents receive tax-free dollars to support the placement, plus free medical coverage for the child and a clothing allowance.
Many of the children ready for placement are school age. Occasionally there are younger children.
Becoming a foster parent is a good first step toward adoption; however, one can become a foster parent even if adoption is not part of the plan.
If you would consider becoming
a foster parent, please call (401) 331-1350 ext. 3305 or email Greg Wright.
Or fill out an inquiry form on-line. Check it out here.
