Become A Foster Parent

Meeting the Growing Needs of Foster Children

Georgia has over 15,000 children in foster care, a number that increases each year. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough foster homes to care for all these children, and some end up being placed in foster homes far from their hometown, and even separated from siblings.

Twin Cedars Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) wants to change this by connecting children to loving foster homes and training foster parents to better care for each child’s needs. We serve children from birth to 21 years old who are in foster care due to child abuse or neglect. These children need the healing power of family, and we believe foster care should be therapeutic and help reduce the effects of trauma.

Our History

Twin Cedars began our foster care services in 2004 when a teacher connected with a child in one of our group homes in Columbus and asked how she could care for the child in her home. This teacher became our very first foster parent, and since then our foster care program has grown and expanded. Now, we have foster homes in Columbus, Macon, and LaGrange.

Referrals
