Want to make a huge impact on the next generation? Along with that next super game or monster app that will be used by millions and forgotten in months, what about making an impact that will last a lifetime and for generations?

Foster care is a support system providing safe, loving homes for children who have been removed from their home through no fault of their own. The placement may be temporary while the biological parents work toward reunification or may be long term.

Who can be foster parents? Anyone over 18 regardless of age, race, marital status, sexual orientation, etc. You can live in a home or apartment. You can be working parents, or have a stay-at-home parent. The parents must have enough income to be self-supporting. Though foster parents are not paid, there is a healthy monthly reimbersement to offset costs related to raising the child.

Invest an hour to learn a bit about foster parenting. The presenter is not a foster care expert, but has been a single foster dad to seven boys, has a 32 year old adopted son, and is currently getting certified to take a group of sibling teen boys.
