Being a foster parent is so much more than loving a child in your home. It’s also showing kindness to a family when they need it most.
It’s giving a child a safe place to land during a hard, scary time when they’re away from home. And it’s showing compassion to a parent who is likely overwhelmed, scared, and without a lot of support.

It’s helping a child stay connected to the only home they’ve ever known, in whatever way it’s safe to do so, and cheering on a family that’s living out a comeback story.

At Bethany, our heart beats for family. We want to see families strong, supported, and together. But we know there are times when families face challenges—and children need care.

That’s why we’re seeking foster parents who believe in families too.

Requirements to become a foster parent

There are many services on hand to support those who foster children in Mississippi. Let's take a look at what's available for caregivers:

Support Payments

In Mississippi, foster parents receive a daily board payment from the Division of Family and Children's Services (DFCS) to help pay for the foster child's board, clothing, and personal allowances. These payments vary and can be between $22.83 and $51.55, depending on the child's age, situation, and needs.

Foster children who have special needs that are not covered by their board payment or monthly allowance can receive up to $100 per month, as necessary. However, this is not a guaranteed monthly allowance and is only provided on a case-by-case basis.

Medical and Dental Coverage

Many children in foster care qualify for medical and dental Medicaid coverage.

The foster parents have the obligation to arrange and accompany the child to all medical and dental appointments. This ensures their overall health and wellness.

Training and Support Groups

Foster parents have access to extra training and support groups. These resources give a platform to foster parents and allow them to interact with others who have experience with the distinctive challenges fostering can pose.

Have tried twice to order on line, don't bother it doesn't work. Both times we get to the store and nothing has been pulled. The last time after paying for our order the gate to the pickup place was locked. This store is run by people who doesn't care about the customer.

Decent hardware store if you're in a tight pinch but still prefer Lowes or even ACE over these guys. Mainly because of the lack of staff and the lack of kindness from the ones that do work there

Stop by Sutherland in Pearl. They will not come to assist you after asking for help. No body came after waiting 20 mins. Employees doing nothing and now I see why there is not many customers in this store. I guess they didn’t need my money. 😠😡🤬😠😡🤯
