Welcome to Morrison’s Foster Family Care Network. The FFCN recruits, trains and supports foster and respite care providers for Morrison’s foster care programs.
Share Your Home.
Currently, there are over 10,000 children in Oregon’s Foster Care System, and there aren’t enough homes for them. Are you the home they are waiting for? Bring your passion, patience and willingness to impact a child’s life and become part of Morrison’s Foster Care team.
Share Your Heart.
You have what it takes to make a difference! Morrison serves foster children ages 3 to 17 who have experienced significant trauma and are in need of a safe, nurturing place to call home while they grow and heal through therapy and tender care. Morrison has six different foster care programs, ranging from long term Therapeutic Foster Care, Adolescent Teen Programs, Respite Services and Short-Term Care.
Become a Foster Parent.
Morrison’s Foster Family Care Network embraces diversity of all kinds in our foster parents. What all of our foster homes have in common is a desire to learn how to care for kids with trauma, a willingness to share their life experience and home, and a desire to be part of a healing team for a child or teen. Morrison provides its foster parents with excellent training, superior support, generous tax free-monthly stipends and the appreciation of a professional therapeutic team.
What we are looking for:
- A desire to offer youth enriching and fun life experiences
- A sense of humor
- A belief in children and teens
- An understanding that children aren’t perfect, but that every child is important
Before becoming a foster parent, you must complete Morrison’s Certification process. This process includes trainings, family interviews and home, health and safety check of your home.
- At least 25 year of age
- Have an existing separate bedroom with a window and door for the foster child
- Financially stable
- Have at least one Oregon licensed driver with a safe driving record
- All members 18 or over in the home pass a criminal background check
