  • Description
  • All across Rhode Island there are children who need foster homes. Whether due to physical abuse, mental health problems or a family emergency, at times foster care is necessary. Foster parents receive the support of a team of clinicians and case managers, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They respond to any phone call within 10 minutes. Foster parents receive tax-free dollars to support the placement, plus free medical coverage for the child and a clothing allowance. Many of the children ready for placement are school age. Occasionally there are younger children. Becoming a foster parent is a good first step toward adoption; however, one can become a foster parent even if adoption is not part of the plan.
