Becoming a Foster Parent: 

The role of foster parents is to provide a caring and supportive environment for children who cannot live with their birth parents until family problems are resolved. The primary goal of foster care is to provide a safe and loving home until children are able to reunify with their parents. Foster parents are part of a team that includes social services staff and the biological parents working toward the goal of reunification. For children who cannot be returned to biological parents, foster placement may be the first step toward permanent placement such as adoption or guardianship.

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent in Riverside County call: 1-800-665- Kids (5437)
