Can you open your home to a child in need?
Each month, over 150 children and young people across Sydney find themselves without a safe place to call home.
Whether a result of domestic violence, physical abuse, neglect of basic needs, parental mental illness, disability or family crisis, or simply a lack of family support, these children have experienced significant hardship in their lives.
Sadly, there aren’t enough carers to take these children in. Could you help to provide them with the support and care they need?
Make a positive impact that lasts a lifetime
Foster carers provide safe, secure and loving homes to children who need it most and there are different ways that you can help
Whether it’s respite or part-time care during critical times, short-term, or long-term care as children grow, foster carers have the ability to make a positive impact that lasts a lifetime.
Whether you’re an experienced carer or parent, a couple, single or an empty-nester with more love to share – you can help children and young people find a brighter future.

Foster Carers Steve & Cathy
Long-time Family Spirit Carers, Steve and Cathy, opened their home and started fostering almost 20 years ago. Caring for their five children and four foster children now between the ages of one and 38 years has filled their lives with much joy, devoting their time, energy and most of all love to them all. Please watch their video below.
“We are all so much richer for having fostered and couldn’t imagine our life any other way,” Cathy said.
