Change a Life - Become a Professional Parent

Have you ever wanted to help a child who truly needs a loving family, but didn’t think you could? There is a way you can! Professional parenting is a unique program that helps everyday people help kids in need.

Professional parents provide a loving home to a child who needs one. They don’t have unusual amounts of time, or energy, or resources, or skill. They are ordinary people who make an extraordinary difference in kids lives.

How is this different from foster care?

In CTA’s professional parenting program, we work with you to carefully match a child to your family. And then we work with you to design an individualized support package for your family, we don’t leave you to figure it out on your own.

As a professional parent, you will be assigned a support team with access to help 24/7. Your team is there to help anytime you have a question or a concern. They coordinate the services you and the child receive, and include professionals to help you with any questions or challenges you face. Common supports and services include:

  • After-school programs
  • Summer programs
  • Respite
  • Parenting consultation
  • Counseling
  • Skills development groups
  • Etc.
