Foster Care

Foster Care at Wellspring

Temporary homes. Lifelong benefits.

Sometimes families need help, and that’s something Wellspring has been providing for more than 120 years. When children are removed from their home due to unsafe conditions – caused by situations like abuse and neglect, we find safe, loving and temporary families where the children can live while we work with their parent(s) on a plan to reunite their family.

It’s hard to believe that on any given day in Michigan, there are more than 13,000 kids in the foster care system. So, when you make the choice to foster a child, you are opening your heart and home to a world of possibilities for you, the foster children and the biological parents. You are providing a new beginning for a family who is in desperate need of hope.

As a Wellspring foster parent, you are surrounded by a supportive team of people who are excited to answer your questions and will be a huge resource to you throughout this entire journey.

Maybe this is the first time you’ve thought about becoming a foster parent or maybe you’ve been thinking about it for some time. Either way, we encourage you to attend an orientation near you. Come and get your questions answered, and then make your decision about what would be best for you and your family.
