Crittenton Foster Care

FOSTER CARE
As of January 2011, there were 6, 723 youth in foster care in the state of Tennessee. You have the opportunity to be the difference for one of these families. Most of the youth we care for have been removed from their homes due to circumstances that were out of their control: abuse, neglect or even abandonment. Crittenton foster families have the advantage of opening up their lives and homes to youth in need. When possible, we aim to reunite these children with their birth families. Crittenton Foster Care seeks to not only impact the life of a child but also the family and community in which they belong.

BECOMING A CRITTENTON FOSTER FAMILY
Crittenton foster families seek to provide a loving and nurturing environment for youth in need. Foster parents are our HEROs, they can’t fly or become invisible but they have the ability to love a child right where they are. Prospective foster parents must meet the minimum requirements to be considered to foster with Crittenton Foster Care:

o AT LEAST 21YEARS OF AGE
o FINANCIALLY ABLE TO MEET HIS/HER NEEDS
o BE ABLE TO NURTURE AND LOVE CHILDREN
o PASS CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS
o BE IN GOOD PHYSICAL HEALTH
o LEARN & APPLY PROVIDED TRAININGS

Foster parents are not required to be perfect and they also know they are not required to do it on their own; we have a wonderful team to assist with consistent and constant support.
