Where to Start

What Do Foster Parents Do?

The term “foster parent” describes a person who provides a home for a child or teen that has entered the foster care system through a state’s child protective services.

Foster parents provide for the daily needs and care of the child, creating a family-like environment for the child and offer supervision, discipline and guidance.

For children in out-of-home placement, living with a foster family can provide them with the positive family experience they need, which in itself is therapeutic. An outside placement agency provides training, certification, and supervision of foster homes, while OBHC comes alongside to support and encourage foster families.
