Check it out! Our Closer to Home Foster Parents gave us their best advice on fostering:
- “Be compassionate with these kids, who don’t have their parents at their side, and give them so much love because that’s what they are hungry for.”
- “Don’t be afraid to fail. Closer to Home provides great training and support. [Closer to Home] has a reputation for doing thorough training and being very supportive with difficult kids. They won’t let you fall on your face.”
- “You never have to feel alone in the process. Closer to Home provides 24/7 on-call support.”
- “Take things slow. Meet the child where they are at and go forward in baby steps. The rewards are sometimes not immediate – do not take that personally. Celebrate the joys.”
