Foster A Child

What it Takes to Become a Foster Parent

A foster parent provides a stable and caring home to a child during times of transition. It’s important for foster parents to recognize that these times can be very difficult and scary for children. To ensure success for children and foster parents alike, The Villages provides training and education for both new and existing foster families. We believe it is critical to provide ongoing support, even after the initial licensing is completed. By participating in ongoing training and development, our foster parents get better and better at providing children with a safe and loving environment.

If you’d like to learn more about becoming a foster parent, the first step is to contact us with your inquiry. We will invite you in for an information session, and to schedule your first training. Once your training is complete and you’ve become a licensed foster family, we’ll continue to provide support and education to ensure your success.

We are a fully accredited licensed child placing agency, and are committed to finding great foster homes for our children.
