You Can Make a Difference

Being a foster parent is an incredibly rewarding—and challenging—experience. Through the training we provide and many other resources available at GOBHI, you can:

  • Provide advocacy, intervention, and support to interrupt generational trauma

  • Positively change foster youths' lives and prepare them for a stable, safe, and healthy future

  • Help build healthy communities

Please note: We can only certify Oregon residents as foster parents.
