About Methodist Foster Care

Methodist Foster Care supports a statewide network of Therapeutic Foster Homes located throughout Louisiana. Together these homes provide care to 130 children. The need in Louisiana for therapeutic foster care is great. We are actively recruiting, training, and certifying new homes. To meet the growing need, our goal is to add 140 new Therapeutic Foster Homes to our statewide network before October 2021.

Join Us! Consider becoming a foster caregiver and join with other specially-trained, highly-supported, foster caregivers.

From central offices in Monroe, Alexandria, Lafayette, Covington, Houma, and Ruston, Methodist Foster Care recruits, trains, certifies and actively supports a state-wide network of Therapeutic Foster Care families who provide family-based treatment in specially trained, actively supported, foster homes for children who cannot live with their natural families.

We are actively recruiting Therapeutic Foster Families!
