Are you interested in becoming a foster parent? You’ve come to the right place. Wellpoint Care Network has a long history of providing foster care – we’ve been licensing and supporting safe, nurturing foster homes since 1984.
Foster homes are in extremely high demand. There are currently more than 7,000 Wisconsin children who need foster care. Many people have already stepped up to become licensed foster parents, but there’s still not enough homes to meet the demand. That’s where you come in.
Don’t Rule Yourself Out So Fast
Thinking about becoming a foster caregiver? You’re probably already more qualified than you think. We need individuals and families from all backgrounds, cultures, neighborhoods and family structures to represent the diverse range of children who need a foster home.
You don’t have to be perfect or have the perfect home. You can be single, married or partnered. You can work outside the home (including full-time) and have children of your own in the home. More than anything, we’re looking for people with love and patience to share (a sense of humor always helps).
