Foster Care & Foster Care Adoption Info Meeting
Bethany Christian Services believes that every child deserves a loving home, and your family can help be a part of that important mission! We’ve found that most people considering foster care have some big questions running through their mind, like:

Have you also wondered what it takes to be a GREAT foster parent? There may not be just one right way to be a foster family, but there are certain factors that can help every family become stronger for the children in their care. In particular, there are 5 Protective Factors that can help guide your readiness and planning to be become a foster parent at Bethany. These factors include parental resilience, social connections, knowledge of parenting & child development, concrete support in times of need, and social & emotional competence of children.
