Foster Care for OYA Youth

Everyone needs a second chance.

Many teens who come to the Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) have never had a positive, supportive adult in their lives. It's one of the biggest barriers to getting their lives back on track.

As an OYA foster parent, you can be that role model. You can provide youth with a supportive, safe, stable home and the guidance to change their lives for the better.
