Change a life forever. Become a foster parent.

Many foster children have experienced significant trauma and have special needs, but all deserve a secure and stable home where Christ-like love is demonstrated.

Every child deserves connection and security. By providing those two things, we can rescue children from the effects of separation and abuse.

You can make a difference in the life of a child! We’re looking for families that will open their homes to provide a safe, nurturing environment until the child is reunified with their biological family or another permanent option is identified.

“Every child deserves someone who loves them like crazy, celebrates them every day, and is their lifelong cheerleader.” – Madaleine Melcher 

Why Is Foster Care Important To Us?

We believe every child is a unique human soul who will live for eternity. We believe in the sacredness of human life and the value of raising children to know their worth and identity as God created them to be.

Since 1992, New Horizons has had Foster Parents providing quality care for children born to prisoners. In 2003, we were licensed to operate as a Child Placement Agency (CPA) to provide certified foster homes for the Department of Human Services (DHS) and incarcerated mothers.
