Becoming a foster parent
At Key Assets, rather than use the term 'becoming foster parents', we prefer to use the term 'becoming foster carers'. This is due to the fact that almost all children in care have birth parents and, although they may not currently be in a position to parent, they still hold the official title of ‘parent’ in that child’s life. In that sense, the term ‘foster parent’ applied to a foster carer can be seen to intrude on the role of the child’s birth family.

Right now, foster carers are needed to provide a safe, stable and caring home to children and young people in Kentucky who, for a number of reasons, cannot live with their own families.
