Be the Hope - For a Child in Alamance County, Consider being a foster parent


There is no better exercise for the heart than lifting someone up.

Did you know…

At any given time, there are more than 100 children in foster care in your own county. These children, ranging in age from infants to teenagers, all need caring foster families who are able to offer them security and love…

The need for foster parents who are able to care for sibling groups and older youth is urgent…

The Alamance County Department of Social Services and Foster Families together work to ensure safety and security for children who need it most. Foster Parents are critical in this equation – they provide a stable home for children until they can either return to their family or find permanent adoptive homes…

Foster parents can be married, single, divorced, widowed, etc., with or without children in the home. You do not have to own your own home or ascribe to any religious or political beliefs. You do need to be willing to provide love and care for a child, be able to meet your own financial needs, and have a demonstrated track record of dependability, compassion, and flexibility. We need YOU!

YOU can help make a difference in the life of a child!!
