Ohio MENTOR Foster Care

Become a Foster Parent

At Ohio MENTOR we believe every child deserves to grow up in a loving family. Our goal is to provide youth at risk with nurturing supports in a loving home where they can heal and move forward. To do that, we need caring foster parents to open their hearts and homes to these deserving kids.

In our Therapeutic Foster Care program, we call our foster parents Mentors because they do so much more than provide a home to a child in need—they help children grow and learn, forever changing their lives. As a Mentor, you will receive 24/7 support from our experienced team of professionals, opportunities to develop skills, and the reward of making a difference in a child’s life. Plus, the bonds of family you will create can last a lifetime.
