Ennis Center needs foster parents to give children a safe place to stay while their birth parents work on changing the issues that brought their children into care. A shortage of foster parents has made helping these families harder. We have to turn away children and youth who need a safe place to stay because we don’t have enough foster homes.
Foster parents are expected to provide a stable, safe and caring environment while efforts are being made to reunite the child with the biological family. By being a foster parent, you can be a great and positive force in the life of a child who desperately needs your help. Foster parents receive training, ongoing support and financial assistance to help them be effective. Foster parents also have access to day care reimbursement, medical coverage for their foster children, mental health services if necessary, and extra help if your foster child has extensive medical needs.
