For Current Foster Parents

Thank you, Foster Parents of Tennessee, for the dedication and hard work you selflessly share with the children and youth who need you.

If you are a Foster Parent, you are among the more than 4,000 families who care for children in state custody.

On behalf of the children unable to be with their families, the birth families facing difficult and painful situations, the social workers building teams to support and empower these families, and the courts tasked with ultimate permanency decisions, we applaud your devoted and generous dedication to Tennessee’s children in foster care.

You are heroes.

This section is filled with information we hope you will find useful in tending to the children living in your care.
