How to become an Emergency Foster Care Hero

Being a hero in everyday life isn’t always an easy feat, however emergency foster care offers a unique and impactful way to benefit your community in ways a hero would. Perhaps you’ve already considered fostering a child, but are still uncertain or don’t currently have the time in your life for a long-term commitment. Either way, there are many children in desperate need of your immediate help and care.

Emergency Foster Care

EFC or Emergency Foster Care is the short-term care of a child, until they can be placed into a more permanent foster home or returned to their family. Often these children require a compassionate rest stop before reaching their destination, with love and support to get them through a very stressful time.  Through EFC you can be an aid to a child in need and be an active participant in the betterment of your community.
