American Indian Foster Families.

American Indian foster families protect our children’s tender roots with warmth, care and love, so that they may grow and flower in the warmth of the sun.

As a foster parent you may be single or married, live in a house or an apartment and you may be older. You don’t need a lot of money to be a foster or adoptive parent but must be able to meet your own financial needs. There are no agency fees and financial supports are available. Timing is an important part of becoming a foster parent.

You should be at least a year away from a major life change, like a marriage or divorce. You will receive help with the paperwork and licensing process.

Right now, we have a shortage of homes to provide care for babies, preschoolers and teenagers. Teens (ages 12 -17) need foster families with a flexible work schedule, people who can get them off to school. After school, most teens need a supervision, an after school program, activities or job. supervised situation.

Some programs provide assistance with fees for providing care for foster children – you must explore this on your own. At home parents, in most situations, are needed now for infants, toddlers and preschool children. Foster parents are reimbursed a basic rate for providing care for all children but not extra for child care, after school or summer programs. Foster families are not reimbursed for child care.
Whether it’s for a few months or years

you can make a difference in a child’s life!
