Foster

The problem of finding foster homes is at a crisis level. There just aren’t enough families stepping forward to provide the foster family experience. Our agency continually has to turn children away because we do not have foster family homes available.

Children in foster care are in desperate need of a stable, loving home where they can be nurtured and begin to realize their full potential. Agape Villages is seeking foster families who feel equipped to provide that kind of environment to a foster child.

Agape Villages foster families have an incredible impact on the lives of the children placed with them. Some of our families go on to adopt their foster children, while others become lifelong sources of support and encouragement for children after they are reunified or emancipate from the system.
