Hispanic youth comprise 21% of foster children nationwide. The ever-increasing Hispanic population means that more families are available to foster children. Unfortunately, it also results in more Hispanic children entering the foster care system.
Some Hispanics in care are non-native English speakers. When possible, Hispanic children are placed in Spanish-speaking homes to make the transition more smooth and strengthen their cultural ties. However, non-Spanish speakers are more than qualified to provide a loving home to Spanish-speaking children, and many support systems are available to families who foster children with cultural backgrounds different from their own.

Note: This is not meant to be an exhaustive list. As we identify additional agencies, we will post them.
Since 1980, Lutheran’s Refugee and Immigrant Children Program has provided culturally appropriate foster homes to refugee and immigrant children from around the world who resettle alone in the United States.
