You Can Make the Difference in a Child’s Life
Be a Foster Parent for Gerard Academy Youth

Some of the boys and girls who complete treatment at Gerard Academy require additional care through foster care before they can return home or move to independent living.

Have you ever thought about being a foster parent? Foster parents can be single, married, have children of their own, have no children, be grandparents, or hope to adopt. All you need is a bedroom for the foster child, a commitment to their safety, and the willingness to invest in their future.

When you become a foster parent licensed through Kindred Family Focus, you have the opportunity to serve children stepping down from treatment at Gerard Academy.

You’ll have lots of support from our team of professionals and specialized trainings that will help you successfully care for each child. We even offer assistance to help you meet the specific financial challenges of being a foster parent.

The first step to becoming a foster parent starts with your call.

Don’t wait. Call today. A child is waiting.
