Ideally, all children should be brought up in a safe and stable home full of love and nurturing. However, this isn’t always the case and that is why Community Access Network, Inc. was instituted. We are a private youth development center community organization and social services organization in California dedicated to providing different social services for children and families.
At Community Access Network, Inc., one of the many services that we provide is our Foster Parent Program. This program is designed to place children into a new, safe home when they can no longer stay at their own residence due to neglect, abuse, or some other factors. For this program to work, we need caring foster parents who can take on this role.
Have you thought about fostering a child but are still experiencing some doubts? Well, here are some benefits of becoming a foster parent that you might not be aware of:
- You are making a difference.
For many, making a positive difference to an innocent child’s life is enough of a reason to become a foster parent. After all, children who are placed in foster care were removed from their biological home due to several, complex, and often times unfavorable situations which may have put their welfare at risk. By becoming a foster parent, you are providing a child with a new, safer environment – something that can truly make a difference in their life. You can provide them with the attention, encouragement, support, and love that they need. Also, the difference that you make doesn’t just last for a few weeks or months – it often lasts for a lifetime.
- It is financially gratifying.
While financial reasons shouldn’t be the reason as to why you apply as a foster parent, it is no secret that it can be financially gratifying. At Community Access Network, Inc., we offer a high financial compensation for those who apply as foster parents in our program. Note that we also provide special incentives for foster parents who can provide care to teenagers and sibling groups.
- You can learn new skills.
We offer free initial and on-going training.We aim to improve the abilities, expertise, and skills of our foster parents so that they can provide the best care possible for the children that they foster. Furthermore, we also offer our foster parents with 24-hour support throughout the entire fostering period.
These are just three of the amazing benefits that you get when you become a foster parent.
