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 the foster care system. The need for compassionate individuals and safe, loving homes is great and growing, especially for children and teens of color, teenagers, sibling groups, and youth with a need for increased behavioral supports. Our foster parents come from all walks of life—married or single, young, middle-aged, or retired. What matters to us is that parents are willing, with our support, to create a healing environment with guidance, safety, and structure to the young people in their care.
