Oregon Youth Authority seeks caring, engaging, nurturing, and diverse people to provide safe and supportive homes for our youth.
As an OYA foster parent, you can be a positive role model while providing youth with the guidance to change their lives for the better.
We have opportunities for full-time and part-time (respite) foster parents, as well as mentors.
Check out stories about our foster youth and foster parents on the Inside OYA blog.
If you have questions about OYA foster care or wish to learn more about applying to be a foster parent, please contact your local certifier.
