Thank you for your interest in making a life-changing impact by exploring what it means to become a Partner Family. At PSF, we call foster parents “Partner Families” because they partner with our agency, the community, a child and their biological parents. Partner Families are special people who open their hearts and homes to children in need of safety, love and nurturing. To find out more about the process to become a Partner Family, please provide your contact information below so that a member of our recruitment team can give you a call directly, or you can call 352-244-1615 to speak with a member of our recruitment team.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the Philanthropy Hub link here.
