Recruiting foster parents to meet the needs of youth placed in care takes an enormous amount of effort. Some of the more challenging homes to find, such as those for teens and large sibling groups, can take a tremendous amount of time often with limited results. Below you will find helpful information to make your quest just a little easier. We have compiled some of the best resources on the areas mentioned, and on community engagement efforts and the retention of foster parents. We hope that you find these resources useful. Also, if you find a terrific resource that is not reflected here, please contact us so that we can add it!
