DCF Offers FREE training to all foster parents.  Do you have love in your heart and space in your home to help a child reach their goals?  Anyone older than 21, who is financially stable, is welcome to apply to become a foster parent.  This includes single parents, LGBTQ+ individuals and couples, adults who have not had children before, adults who have had many children, divorced couples, blended families, couples living together, people who rent, those with medical conditions, and more.  Every child has different needs from their foster parent(s) and we work to count you in, not out, as a foster parent!   Call 1-888-KID-HERO to learn more!
