We are currently seeking individuals or couples to become respite carers in our internationally proven program Treatment Foster Care Oregon (TFCO). This short-term program works with children over a period of around six to 12 months by providing positive reinforcement and wrap around support. Respite carers provide relief for current full-time carers for one weekend a month and receive $178 per night.

We encourage First Nations People to join us to help care for First Nations children whose families are facing vulnerable times.
At OzChild keeping First Nations children connected to their families, kin, cultures and country is integral to their health and wellbeing, in order to enable them to meet their aspirations.
