We Are Recruiting Foster Families

Methodist Foster Care is Louisiana’s largest and most innovative therapeutic foster care agency. Our children come from difficult places and we welcome them all! Our families care for children throughout Louisiana and they reflect the diverse demographics of our state.

Become a Foster Parent!

When a child has nowhere to go and no one to turn to, you may be the answer!  Methodist Foster Care recruits, trains, certifies, and actively supports a state-wide network of families who provide Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC), a family-based treatment in specially trained foster homes for foster children.


What is Therapeutic Foster Care?

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) allows a child to live in a caring home with trained and supported TFC parents who help a child while her or his family receives help.  In TFC, a child receives treatment for emotional needs from community-based mental health professionals.  Therapeutic Foster Families offer a child a supportive family setting until the child can return to her or his natural family or a permanent home is created for the child.

No matter how big your heart is, no one expects you to care for a child without financial help.  Depending on the needs of the child, you will receive either $36 or $60 per child per day in order to cover room and board, clothing, and extra-curricular activities.  Also, as an active foster parent, you are eligible for a $500 referral bonus up to four times a year for referring others who become certified and accept and maintain a child!
