On any given day, there are over 5,000 Victorian children who cannot live safely at home, through no fault of their own.
Foster carers play an important role in giving these children loving and safe homes and helping them to reach their goals and improve their quality of life.
More foster carers from all walks of life are needed to meet the demand for care.
You can find out more by ringing the Foster Care Hotline on 1800 013 088, visiting the Foster a Brighter Future website, or by watching the following short video, in which real carers tell their story.
If you're not living in Victoria but are interested in fostering, the Foster Care Association of Victoria has a listing of Australian State and Territory foster care organisations.
