Change lives as
a foster parent

We believe foster care agencies do not provide foster care …foster parents do.  There is no comparable experience to being a foster family for a child with medical or developmental needs. It is both richly challenging and richly rewarding. It will test parenting skills and open a household to unmatched levels of joyful triumph and at times, loss. We work with a vulnerable population of children.

Through the journey we will be by your side.


Our expert support team is always here

Our role as a foster care agency is to provide the best and most compressive support possible to you. 


In Georgia there is particular need of foster families for children with medical complexity, developmental disabilities, teens, and sibling groups. 


Am I a good fit?

The remarkable families that open their hearts to Childkind’s children are motivated by personal passions to help the most vulnerable and to make the world a better place for them. Their capacity for love is abundant; their dedication to the children they foster.

Our role as a foster care agency is to provide the best and most compressive support possible to you.

Why foster with childkind

Programmatic Reasons

  • Childkind has its own nurses – a Childkind nurse can help the foster parent understand the child’s complete care needs, can answer questions or address concerns that might arise, and provide assistance when a child’s regimen of care changes.
  • Childkind has its own behavioral health staff, including a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Behavioral Support Specialist. Childkind can provide behavioral management training and support for the foster parents without the need of going to an outside provider.
  • Much of Childkind’s foster parent training is conducted in-house and is geared towards the needs of the children and foster parents served through the program. Trainings are conducted at convenient times for foster families.
  • Childkind has a lot of veteran foster parents who can be a resource for new parents
