Unaccompanied Alien Children foster homes are desperately needed. Perhaps you have heard in the news that our southern border is being inundated by children without their parents from South America. Hosanna is striving to provide fifty foster home beds for this humanitarian crisis. This is short-term (30 day) average care. While knowing the Spanish language is a big plus, don’t let the language issue be a barrier. Orientation and training for foster parents are being conducted by Hosanna on a continual basis until we can recruit the homes we need. Foster families can take from one to six kids with a maximum of two children per bedroom. You are paid $1,000.00 per child per month to provide this care. If you are interested or need more information, please email or call him at 510-329-8100

Specific foster homes needed:

Tuolumne County is seeking a home in the Pleasanton area for a 16 year old male who has had his parent’s rights terminated and desires a home near his aunt. This is a gentle well-mannered child who will undoubtedly remain with his foster family at least until he is 18 and perhaps until he is 21.
