Posted on April 17, 2015 by

  1. You have always thought about becoming a foster parent. Find out if now is the right time for your family. Call 978-935-9555
  2. You have a big heart. You want to be able to provide a stable and nurturing environment for a child in need.
  3. You have a sense of humor. Parenting can sometimes be challenging. On difficult days laughter is the best medicine.
  4. You have room for an extra person around the dinner table. You don’t need a big home, just room for one (or two) more.
  5. You have always wanted a big family. There are hundreds of sibling groups that would love to find a home together.
  6. You are ready to fill your Empty Nest. You love parenting and miss having kids in your home.
  7. You are married or single, gay or straight. Marital status and sexual preference do not determine eligibility to become a foster parent. Click HERE to read more myths about foster parenting.
  8. You are ready to take on the challenges and reap the rewards. Foster care agencies including Plummer Foster Care provide support, training and guidance.
  9. You can afford it. Foster Care is more affordable than you may think. Families receive a stipend from the state to help provide for the child in their home. Foster children’s medical expenses are covered as well.
  10. You want to make a difference in a child’s life. Annually, there are 7000 youth in Massachusetts who need foster homes. We don’t have enough foster families to meet the demand.   Change a Life. Become a Foster Parent.
