Becoming a Foster Family

Foster and adoptive families are a valuable resource in caring for children placed in the State’s care and custody. More than 6,500 Oregon children are currently placed in temporary, safe homes. There are about 3,500 Oregon foster homes. More skilled families are needed to temporarily or permanently care for children who have been abused or neglected.

The Oregon Foster Parent Association supports, advocates for and represents foster and adoptive families by:

  • Providing peer support
  • Advocating for legislative and agency change
  • Improving the care, support and training systems for families
