Applying to be a foster parent is a multi-step process. Reviewing this website is the first step!

It is important that you take the Foster Parent Self-Assessment – KidsNet_Assessment_Guide.pdf – this will help you understand how you feel about fostering and if it is right for you. Feel free to contact one of the Foster Parent Trainers listed below if you have any questions.

Finally, you must attend a Foster Parent Information Meeting. We will tell you about our current needs and allow plenty of time for questions and answers.

Meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m..  
Upcoming dates are: 
Thursday, May 22nd
Thursday, August 21st
Thursday, October 16th

The sessions will be held in our Human Services Building (West End Office), 8600 Dixon Powers Drive, Henrico, VA 23273. Please contact one of the Foster Parent Trainers below to register (if you leave a message, please provide your full name(s) and how many will be in attendance).

Urgent Need:

We especially need families with a special interest in helping our older youth (age 13 and up).
If this is you, please call to register for the next information meeting.
