Foster Care is the temporary service provided to ensure the safety and well-being of children/youth while in out-of-home care.


We're excited about your interest in our foster care program. Please look at the different links on this page and don't forget the important link, "Email us," on the right side of your screen. This will enable you to provide us a way to contact you to discuss your interest, answer any questions and hopefully start you on the path to become a foster parent.


It takes a team to make a difference in the life of a child. Foster homes are currently needed for all ages, but especially teens and sibling groups.


Contact a Wyoming foster care coordinator in your area.
