Foster Care San Diego.jpgIn San Diego, there are many children and teenagers in need of a loving, stable home life. Some children need temporary foster care while the system attempts to coordinate reunification with their parents. Typically, reunification efforts take place the first 12 months a child is placed in custody. Most children are brought into the fostering system due to parents’ incarceration, drug problems, physical abuse and sexual abuse.

Unfortunately, history teaches us that children experience abuse even within the system. For this reason, organizations such as Walden Family Services are actively seeking high quality foster parents. Walden’s has a thorough process to ensure adults providing foster care are safe and of a sound mind.

If you have ever thought of fostering in San Diego,¬† attend a foster orientation with Walden Family Services. Orientations are held monthly and you can be married or single, straight or gay, and you must have an extra bedroom. Please visit Waldnen’s FAQ’s about fostering and adoption and contact them to register for their next orientation.
