Foster Care & Adoption

"Foster parenting has changed my life completely and has touched my heart and soul in so many different ways."
LaTasha, Lighthouse Foster Parent

Becoming a Foster Parent

Foster parenting. A big commitment with an even bigger purpose.

Our commitment to you is to provide all the facts, insights and support to help you make the best decision for you, your family, and the foster child who could be a part of your family.

You don’t need a fancy house. You don’t need to be wealthy. You’re not too old. You don’t need any special expertise in working with children, and you don’t have to have raised children of your own. To be successful it’s important to have a willingness to learn, the ability to adapt and try new strategies, patience, and the capacity to share joy and laughter. You also need to be willing to provide a safe, stable and caring home, and be willing to work as a part of the Lighthouse team.

Lighthouse Foster Care & Adoption welcomes all children and all families and has the policies and practices in place to welcome and support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) families and children.

Lighthouse is recognized as a “Leader in Supporting and Serving LGBT Youth and Families” and has been awarded the All Children-All Families Seal of Recognition by the Human Rights Campaign.

Life with foster children is very rewarding, despite its challenges. Can you be the somebody?
