"We have been so incredibly blessed with the staff and agency and will unequivocally recommend anyone who feels called to foster a child who needs a hand to hold, a family to be loved, a home to feel safe in, to work with Salvation Army Children's Services. The level of care for each foster family is above and beyond most of what we have experienced in the foster care world.

Thank you for everything."

Matt and Megan Steinruck


Fostering Children

As a foster parent, you can have an incredible impact on the life of a child in need by providing a temporary home. These children, often victims of troubled families, need a period of separation from their biological families. Foster parents offer a caring and nurturing home for a child, giving the biological family the opportunity to rebuild their lives.

As a foster parent with The Salvation Army’s Foster Care & Adoption program, you are never alone on your journey. You will receive support and caring from our compassionate staff, as well as excellent training and compensation for the child’s care. We also provide a range of support services and are committed to providing the best possible care for every child and every family in our program.

We Offer Three Types of Foster Care:

  • Regular Foster Care: Foster parents provide for the temporary care for children who require out of home care.
  • Respite Foster Care: Respite families provide short term care to foster parents who are already caring for children.
  • Foster-Adopt (Legal Risk): Foster parents provide care for a child on a temporary basis but are open to adoption should the child become legally free for adoption.

When you make the decision to foster children, we will support you through the process, every step of the way. There are many children in your community in need of a safe, loving place to call home, so please consider opening your heart and home to one of them. Contact us today to get started.
