In North Carolina there are over 10,000 children in foster care at any given time. By becoming a foster parent you provide a safe and welcoming temporary home environment during a time of crisis. CARING for Children, a program of Eckerd Connects, provides foster care services across the State of North Carolina and can help you become a licensed foster parent and support you through the entire process.
Children who enter the foster care system through the Department of Social Services have been the victims of abuse and neglect and need a safe home. They need YOU to be a loving, caring, and supportive caregiver as a foster parent.
