Children and youth enter foster care because they have been abandoned, abused, or neglected by their parents or guardians. All of these children have experienced some type of loss or trauma. In other ways, foster children are just like other children: they need stable, loving homes that nurture growth and development.

Therapeutic Foster Care serves children and youth ranging from birth to 21 years of age. These children may identify as LGBTQ, experienced severe abuse, may have been a victim of sex trafficking, may have experienced substance abuse disorder, or currently live with a behavioral health disorder.

These children may experience some developmental delays or disabilities.

Requirements to become a foster parent

You're never alone when you foster as you work as part of a professional team. Louisiana’s Department of Children and Family Services partners with many organizations to help support foster children and the families that care for them.

The collaborative Foster Caregiver Mentor Program encourages peer relationships between foster families. It's an effective way for new resource parents to meet with more experienced caregivers and get advice.

Your local DCFS also has plenty of resources online, including parent handbooks, contact information, and emergency service information. You can learn more about child welfare agencies and how to become a foster parent.

A child-placing agency is always there for you, providing support in times of crisis or even when you have questions. Don't forget about the case worker, who you can contact if you feel lost.

Working with the birth parents is another part of a foster parent's job. However, you don't have to simply contact them to set up visitations and calls. Co-parenting with them is often best for the child, and it can make your job easier.

Didn't like the fact that I had to sit outside in the hot sun to visit my granddaughter. Staff was nice and the place looks good.

Sadly Raintree is an often overlooked non-profit. They do great work housing, caring and supporting at risk youths. I beg you to learn more and consider donating to help a wonderful cause.
