Learn How

Foster children need someone to rely on and a safe space to call home. You can be who they count on when they need it most.

The challenge is great. The reward is greater.

Being a foster parent is hard. It means being flexible in the face of frustration and dedicated in the face of disconnect. Persistence and patience are musts. But when you provide a safe space for a child in need, the reward of being a part of their growth and healing is immeasurable.

Ranking at the 7th highest in the U.S., nearly 600 children in Indiana enter foster care every month needing the promise of safety and stability. In 2022, there were 10% fewer foster homes than the year before. You can help change that.

We're Here to Help

“Fostering was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. But without a doubt, it would have been harder without the support of our Firefly foster care case manager. She offered so much more than case management – she was our advocate, my sounding board, my daughter’s duet partner, and our constant through a lot of changes. We think of the Firefly team as part of our family.”

Attend a Q&A session. Meet one-on-one with a licensing specialist. Our committed team ensures you get all the information you need while deciding if fostering is right for your family.
