Why Become a Foster Parent

Truly there are many reasons to become a foster parent and McKinley ensures that any willing and qualified foster parent will be successful in helping a child in need. :      

You are looking to adopt: If you are looking to potentially adopt a child, the Foster-to-Adopt option is a great place to start. Becoming a foster parent can eventually lead to a permanent adoption while helping a foster child at the same time.
