You Can Change a Child’s Life by Becoming a Foster Parent

Nearly 400 children currently live in foster homes in Duval, Nassau and Clay counties. Every week, about 20 children enter child welfare in the tri-county area. These children are removed from their homes for a planned, temporary period of time.

Some are placed with relatives, some are placed in group homes, and many are placed in foster homes where they will be cared for by loving, nurturing and supportive foster parents.
