May is National Foster Care Month and we thought we’d share 10 ways in 10 days you can support kids in care without becoming a foster parent.
Tip #2. Become a respite provider or approved babysitter
This requires background checks and fingerprinting and training, so it is often hard to find people who are willing to go through all of this. If you know a foster family, ask them how to become a babysitter/respite provider for them. If you don’t know anyone who fosters, contact a local foster care agency or foster care ministry and find out if there is a family you could support in this way.
