Become a Foster Parent

In Virginia, the need for supportive, nurturing foster homes is great.

At DePaul Community Resources, we are always looking for compassionate individuals who want to open their homes and hearts to children and teens in need. Our foster parents come from all walks of life—married or single, young, middle-aged, or retired. What matters to us is that parents can provide guidance, safety, and structure to the young people in their care.

Attend an Information Session

We offer information meetings in our local Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Lynchburg, and Roanoke offices, as well as interactive online webinars that you can attend from anywhere.
