News & Events

Do you or someone you know want to become a foster parent? Are you curious about what it all means? Wellspring Lutheran Services wants to help you along the journey – especially since the need for foster parents is at an all-time high. It takes approximately 4-6 months to become a licensed foster home, but the first step is to attend an orientation. If you are a two-parent family, both parents are required to complete orientation.

If you have questions or want to register for one of these orientation dates, please contact the Wellspring Lutheran Services office listed below or reach us here: contact us.
