Pennsylvania MENTOR Foster Care

Become a Foster Parent

At Pennsylvania MENTOR, we believe every child deserves to grow up in a loving family. Our goal is to provide youth at risk with nurturing supports in a family setting where they can heal and move forward. To do that, we need caring foster parents to open their hearts to these deserving kids.

In our Therapeutic Foster Care program, we call our foster parents Mentors because they do so much more than provide a home to a child in need—they help children grow and learn, forever changing their lives. As a Mentor, you will receive 24/7 support from our experienced team of professionals, opportunities to develop skills, and the reward of making a difference in a child’s life. Plus, the bonds of family you will create can last a lifetime.

Now is a critical time for many siblings in our community, and you can begin your foster care journey with us from home. Our team is available for virtual meetings and phone calls to discuss any and all questions you may have about how to support youth in Pennsylvania!
