Letter From Our CEO 

Martin & Brooke Hansen

Dear Potential Foster Parent,

Let me start by expressing my thanks for your interest in becoming a Foster Parent.  My wife and I are parents to three children, two of which are now grown adults.  We continue to experience great joy in our children, but we also know how challenging parenting can be.  At this point in our lives, we are seeing much of the fruits of our labor.
