AFS seeks individuals and families who can offer warmth and understanding to foster children by becoming foster parents. AFS foster parents are chosen based upon their ability to demonstrate patience, guidance, motivation, tolerance, understanding, flexibility and commitment. AFS foster parents have excellent 24/7 support, compensation, training and agency accountability.
AFS operates three foster care models designed to be solution-focused, strength-based, needs-driven, community-centered and culturally competent.
If you are an AFS Foster Parent or staff member and know someone interested in becoming a foster parent, the AFS Foster Parent Referral Program allows you to earn money while helping foster children and youth work towards a permanent solution.
