Foster Child Programs???


TRIBE Member
I haven't been on here in a REALLY long time but thought that someone here might be able to help me out a little.

I've decided that I would like to get a foster child but am a little unsure of all the programs that are run and I figured that there must definitely be a few Tribe members that are involved in such things and could point me in the right direction.

I definitely do not want an organization that is in any way affiliated with a religious group and want one that spends as much as possible on the actual child as opposed to advertising and such.

Any recommendations???

Thanks in advance for the help.

Um, I think it's really hard to find a foster child organization that is not religious or that does not advertise, or else how could they get the exposure needed to help children?

Do you mean like sponsoring a child or basically adopting one?

No, I mean a foster child. And yes, I understand that they all advertise but what I meant was that as much as possible goes to directly helping the child, as opposed to administration costs and advertising.

For instance, some have 80% of the money you pay go to the child, the rest of admin stuff, while others have 65% or 90% or whatever.

I'm sure that there is at least one or two foster parent organizations out there that are not religious.
