Foster & Adoptive Parent Program
What does a foster or adoptive parent look like? They look a lot like you.
Someone who is understanding, caring, and wants to see kids succeed. We need people like you to give children in the New River Valley safety, comfort, and an opportunity to grow. And we’ve got the training, resources, and support to help you do it. Find out how to become a foster or adoptive parent, and let’s help children in our community, together.
Our parents can be:
- Single, married, widowed or divorced
- Any age, at least 21 years old
- A family with or without children
- A renter or a homeowner
- Employed or retired, financially able to care for family’s present needs
Who are we and how can we help?
The Foster & Adoptive Parent Program helps our community’s most vulnerable and hurting children. Since 2005, the New River Valley Department of Social Services agencies have joined together to create a non-profit resource program in order to recruit, train and support foster and adoptive families. We serve the five Department of Social Service agencies of Floyd County, Giles County, Montgomery County, Pulaski County, and Radford City. Using a nationally recognized curriculum, we train prospective foster and adoptive parents to create a greater number of possible matches for children in our communities.
