    I have been working at The MENTOR Network as a contractor (more than 8 years)


    The pros to being a therapeutic foster parent, is helping children that have been through rough situations in their lives. We are able to show them love, give them nurturing homes to live in, we provide discipline and boundaries to help them get back on track.


    The cons are foster parents do not get paid enough to deal with some of the issues that we deal with in taking care of someone else's children. Some foster parents do not do this for the money. But we also have to survive, with our own children. Running these kids all over town for every therapy appointment and psych appts can be very time consuming. all that on top of kids getting suspended from school and having to get of work risking losing your job if you have one. The pay has decreased $25,550 from 2006 to 2013, cost of living has not decreased. Nor would anyone else stay on their job if they had to do the same job and sometimes even more work for less pay.... North Carolina needs to do better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like you care when we need help for these children. We advocate for these children as if they're our own, but you turn your phones off at 5pm. Foster parents can't turn their phones off nor can they take a sick day when they want to. We work 24 hours a day for $43 a day per child or $20 a day per child while you have a set pay and only work 40 hours a week.
