She is my “Mom”

“I do not consider the woman I live with to be my ‘foster mother’ – she is my ‘Mom.’ She has helped me grow into a better, smarter, wiser person. I know she cares for me and loves me. My mom is the first person I could be truthfully honest with and not worry about being judged.” – A foster youth, now in college

Pinebrook Family Answers is always in need of stable, caring foster families for children and youth who are unable to live with their own families. Foster parenting is a commitment to the health and welfare of children who are at risk for serious abuse and neglect. It is based on the belief that healthy family living is fundamental for all children to grow and succeed. By opening their hearts and homes to vulnerable children, foster parents help in myriad ways. They…

  • Teach children how to behave in age-appropriate, socially responsible ways;
  • Help children develop healthy, caring relationships with others;
  • Help children overcome their limitations;
  • Provide a model of self-control;
  • Nurture cultural identity;
  • Understand and nurture the bonds and love that children have for their own families;
  • Offer a temporary, protective haven for hurting kids; and
  • Give childhood back to children.
