What is my role as a foster parent?
Foster parents welcome children into their home and provide them with safety, stability, and support. Foster parents are expected to be the primary caretaker for the child, including taking them to appointments, enrolling them in activities, helping them to develop improved social and independent living skills, and providing a therapeutic environment to promote healthy growth and development.
