Foster parents provide critical support for a child in crisis. When children cannot live with their parents, foster parents bridge the gap to meet both physical and emotional needs, including food, clothing, shelter, medical care, in a safe, nurturing, and loving environment.
As the child welfare system bursts at the seams with a record-breaking number of children, the need for foster parents is greater than ever before. As a foster parent with EmberHope Youthville, you play a vital role in sparking change to improve the lives of children who need it most.
Becoming a foster parent is one of the most important and life-changing decisions you will ever make, and the responsibility can seem overwhelming. But you won’t be alone. With our 90-year legacy of providing a wide range of quality services, EmberHope Youthville offers our foster parents the knowledge, support, and reassurance necessary to provide the care and comfort these children so desperately need.
