This May, during Nation Foster Care Month, please consider providing a loving home for a child who has been separated from his or her parents. Over 20,000 children in Florida have been removed from their parents or guardians; however, only 5,000 families are certified to meet their needs.

If you are interested in learning more about foster parenting children in Florida who do not have relatives who are able to care for them, please call 1-83-FOSTERFL or visit

If you are interested in immigrant and refugee foster care, please reach out to one of the two U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ foster care program partners in Florida:
