Fostering Love

More than 1,000 children in Hampton Roads are in the foster care system. They are in need of a safe, loving home just like yours, and the benefits of fostering can lead to a lifetime of happiness for you and the child.

Many people who want to help believe they are not eligible to foster. Think you need to be wealthy, live in a mansion, or married to help a child in need? Think again. Here’s what a foster parent looks like:

Foster parents with The Up Center are:

  • At least 25 years old with a stable income
  • Single, married, or divorced
  • Homeowners or renters
  • Working, a stay-at-home parent, or retired
  • In possession of a valid driver’s license and reliable vehicle
  • Able to commit to all training sessions
