Become a Respite Provider

A respite provider provides short term care for children in foster care. This could vary from a few hours to the whole weekend. Respite providers receive a stipend to help cover the costs of providing for the child while they are with them. Our respite parents are willing to provide respite to children in full time care or who live with their family and are in need of some respite time.  

Being a respite provider offers an excellent opportunity to help children in need while learning about foster care and its commitment. Many of our full-time parents started out doing respite care. Please use the form below to contact us if you are interested in providing short-term or weekend care to children in foster care.

Become a Mentor

Mentors meet with the child routinely and serve as an advocate, friend, and role model for these youth. Times and frequency vary child to child. If you're interested in becoming a mentor, please fill out the form below.
