We have launched a new Foster and Adoption campaign to find Foster and Adoptive parents for teenagers and sibling groups. Campaign billboards will be out in the Austin area starting December 19. Share your love, support and home as a foster or adoptive parent. We are looking for you!

Join us for a free orientation to learn more about becoming a foster or adoptive parent. Click here for a list of upcoming orientation dates.

Potential foster parents come from diverse backgrounds, and may be single or married. The Settlement Home locates, screens, trains and verifies potential foster parents to become providers with us. Our foster family staff provides continuing education and development for those chosen to serve and is on-call to provide support, respite care and crisis intervention when needed. A monthly reimbursement and medical coverage is provided to assist with the expense of raising a foster child. Therapy services are also covered by the agency for each foster child in need.
