Foster Family Recruitment

Child Placement Services

The His House Foster Family Recruitment Program focuses on inviting and supporting families to open their hearts and homes to welcome children in need. His House provides extensive and ongoing comprehensive support services to foster families so that children may have a safe and nurturing home environment, often for the first time in their young lives. The organization recruits, trains, licenses and supports foster parents in addition to providing a multitude of other services and activities to preserve happy and safe placements.

I joined His House Children’s Home February 2020 as the new Licensing Manager. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Florida International University and earned a graduate degree in social work from Barry University.

I have worked in the child welfare system for over 16 years starting my career as a case manager and moving up managing other case managers transitioning into the nonprofit sector. There I learned to have a greater understanding of the socio-judicial and educational needs and challenges faced by our biological parents.

This has given me a greater sense of appreciation for them and our foster parents who take on the incredible role of loving children in foster care by opening their homes and their hearts. My team and I at His House are all about serving our children and those very special individuals and families that care for them. From providing step by step guidance through the licensing process to providing support through the good times and challenging times, we are here for you. Please consider becoming a foster parent and changing the life of a child.

I joined His House Children’s Home in September of 2020 as the new Licensing Specialist. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Florida International University and will begin my Master’s Degree Program in Mental Health Counseling in January 2021.

Following graduation, I began working as a Dependency Case Manager with Children’s Home Society where it was my goal to keep children safe at home with their families. It was very important to me to build on the parent’s strengths in order to empower them to raise their children in a healthy, nurturing home. I am very excited to be working with His House as I continue to best support our children by finding them safe and forever homes.

I love working day in and day out to ensure we have quality foster homes.

I am a Licensing Support Specialist for His House Children’s Home. I have worked in the child welfare system for nine years and with His House for 6 years.

My passion always has been working with children since my childhood where I dreamed of becoming a pediatrician. Through this journey of life though, I found and accepted a position working with abused, abandoned, or neglected children.

Working as a case manager for Broward County’s lead agency as a case manager, I quickly realized that I could make more of a difference in a unique area of child welfare, which brought me to His House. I love working day in and day in support of our children and families to ensure all our children have a safe and outstanding quality of life.

I honestly pride myself in giving 110% to supporting and caring for our children while bringing awareness to the need of quality families and homes for our most vulnerable children.

Every Child Deserves a Family

The decision of becoming a foster family is a Blessing beyond words. For many foster kids, it is an answer to prayer that comes only through the grace of God who is allowed to shine is light of love and hope through you.

From the most seasoned to first time foster families, we all truly believe in providing full support to all our foster families 100% of the time. In fact, for many of us, the love and selflessness our foster families give to foster care youth is indeed inspiring. We are ready to assist in every way possible throughout this wonderful journey called foster parenting.
