A foster family positively influences a child’s life by providing nurturing and guidance and seeing that all of their physical and emotional needs are met. The foster family makes connections with the children that can last a lifetime.

U.P. KIDS Foster Care services include recruitment, licensing, training and support to foster families across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The goals of the services are to provide stable and loving care for these children until they can safely reunite with their families, or in some cases, a permanent adoptive home is found. Foster Care provides children with their essential needs and supports their continued growth and development.

"Foster parenting can open your mind to a new idea of family—for bigger, for better, forever."
