Foster Parent Resources

Being a foster parent is a tough job and you are not expected to do it all on your own. There are several resources available to assist foster parents through their sometimes trying experiences with foster youth and service providers.

Foster Parent Mentor Program


During your 1st year of foster parenting, you may be paired with a more experienced foster parent who will offer guidance. Assignments are done in coordination with College of the Redwoods Foster and Kinship Care Education Program and Child Welfare Services staff.
