Programs: Foster Care

As a faith-based agency, Circle of Care partners with churches and families throughout Oklahoma to educate, recruit, and empower families to open their hearts and homes to children in need.

For current foster parents, login here for virtual Foster Parent Training.

Circle of Care works to recruit, train, and provide ongoing support to foster parents. We have a contract through DHS to provide these services throughout the state. You can transform a life by providing a safe and loving home for a child in crisis.

If fostering is a fit for you and your family, Circle of Care can help. We can assist you with paperwork, complete the home study and provide training, all at no cost to you. In fact, when you foster through Circle of Care, you receive financial assistance such as paid respite care, clothing allotments, and community involvement funds.
