Become a Foster Parent

Join our Family of Foster Parents

Holston United Methodist Home for Children partners with loving families who desire to provide support, encouragement and a temporary home for children who have experienced trauma, teenagers, sibling groups and medically fragile children in transition.

Our Family Support System

Our families undergo extensive training, background checks and a home study prior to becoming an approved home. Once a family is approved, we provide ongoing monthly training. When a child is placed in the home, the foster family is supported by a Child & Family Specialist, a Foster Parent Support Specialist and additional staff who are available night or day to help with any need. Respite care is available to provide families a break from the demands of being a foster parent. Our foster parents receive a generous monthly reimbursement for caring for a child in transition.
If you are a Tennessee resident, please send us an email or call 423-638-4171. If you are a Virginia resident, please send us an email or call 276-591-5301. We have staff available to serve you in Knoxville, Greeneville, Tri-Cities, and SW Virginia.

We are praying for you as God leads you to care for
children in transition.
