It only takes one adult to change a child’s life for the better. Are you that person?
Foster and adoptive parents have the unique opportunity to touch the lives of children in a significant and lasting way. It takes a special type of person to provide stability to children in crisis when their own home has stopped being a safe place to live.
Families must be able to be flexible and cope with rejection, be able to provide structure, know how to use resources and ask for support, and parents must be able to meet their own personal needs. Successful families also must be comfortable with the fact that they may make mistakes; just as every child is not perfect, every parent is not either. Above all, families need to be committed and be full of affection.

Janice Long told us “this program is always here for you. They helped me get custody of my great niece and I would tell anybody to work with them to foster or adopt.”
