Fostering Life

Caring for kids in need in Vegas
At Canyon Ridge, we want to be a place where families go to get better. We also know that fostering is a tremendous way to do that. Fostering Life partners with organizations across Las Vegas to support, encourage, and connect fostering and potential foster families. There are plenty of ways to get involved, either as a volunteer or a foster family.

This is a great first step to learn more about Fostering Life. We’ll provide information on how you can join in as volunteers, and how to become a safe family and/or foster parent. We’ll answer any questions about fostering that you may have! We’d love to meet you and hear what God is placing on your heart.
