Permanent Family Connections Description
BE THE DIFFERENCE IN A YOUNG PERSON’S LIFE
Join us for information and orientation nights.
Second Wednesday of each month.
Right now, there are 2,100 abused and neglected Sacramento youth without a home and a shortage of compassionate foster parents to care for them. Become a foster parent with Stanford Youth Solutions to be part of the solution.
We walk you through your adoption process and provide complete support for you to successfully care for a child who desperately needs a safe, loving family like yours to call their own. Most families are approved within three months.
Last year, Stanford Youth Solutions did amazing work and certified 15 new foster parents, but it’s still not enough!
We need your help to give local children a loving home and foster their growth.
Become a foster parent and take on one of the most rewarding challenges in life: parenthood.
We need foster parents who are:
Deeply committed to giving a youth a home, time and attention
Patient, flexible and willing to learn
Over age 25 and healthy (no upper age limit)
Single, married or in a domestic partnership
Receiving a steady income
Living in an apartment, condo or house with room for a youth
A licensed driver, with a car and insurance
Ready to jump in? We will provide you with:
On-call support, 24 hours a day/7 days a week
Dedicated social workers with individualized support for youth and families
Multiple services in one location
Family support groups and monthly newsletters
Connections to community resources
Mentor parent support
Apply to become a foster parent
