Foster Care Program

Thousands of children enter the foster care system each year and range in age from infants to young adults. These children are in need of a safe space and a loving family to be a part of. Crittenton’s Foster Care Program was established to respond to the needs of foster youth by finding supportive and caring resource parentsthat would like to grow their families and provide a nurturing environment for all children to thrive.

Our foster care program takes pride in our approach to working with and welcoming every potential caregiver and family that would like to help a foster child. We are licensed, nationally accredited, and knowledgeable of the regulations associated with fostering making our team a great source of support and guidance throughout the process.

Crittenton Services for Children and Families is always happy to meet new resource parents or families to help us in our mission in caring for the most vulnerable children in our community. Our resource parents and families play a vital role in advocating for the children and youth that have no one else to turn to for support. And we are excited for the opportunity to build a lasting and fruitful partnership with every one of you.

If you would like to know more about Crittenton’s Foster Care Program, and are interested in experiencing the joys of making a meaningful difference in a young person’s life, then perhaps, becoming a Crittenton resource parent or family might be a good fit for you.

I am eternally grateful for what the Valdez family did for me and how they were willing to accept me as one of their own without judgment. Even though Mrs. Valdez is not my biological mother, I still see her as my mother, she and the entire Valdez family protected me and did more for me than what my own biological family was not capable of doing.
