Become A Foster Parent

Children First Foster Family Agency is committed to giving children hope. We partner with foster and adoptive parents to accomplish that purpose. In 50 percent of foster cases, children are not able to return to their birth families. As a result, many are waiting for homes. When you foster adopt in Shasta County, you give a child the opportunity to live in the safety of a healthy family unit.

At Children First, we believe in being with you every step of the way. We have enabled both adoptive children and adoptive parents to be successful through the transition from foster care to adoption. We also offer follow-up services and resources. With our many positive reviews from both parents and children, we have a proven track record of successful cases.

When you foster adopt, you have the opportunity to spend six months or more with your potential adoptee. This is an obvious advantage to foster adoption and it gives you and the child the chance to get to know each other. We know that relationships take time. And when you need support, our social workers are just a phone call away.

Foster adoption costs less–way less–than other adoptions. When you adopt through us, your costs will potentially be less than $5,000 where a non-foster adoption could cost you up to $30,000. With so many children in need, we believe in making it possible for your dream of adopting to come true. We take it seriously. We help you get there.


Call Children First Foster Family Agency today to find out how you can foster care in Shasta County. Give a child the chance to see his or her dreams for a forever family come true.
