Abstract

If parents are unable, unwilling, or unfit to take good care of a child, the child might be better in a new home environment. An alternative way called foster caring, which is given by foster carers, would likely to take place. In this regard, the study determined the factors affecting foster carers to foster care a child and identified the more prevalent factors. The study considered both formal and informal foster care systems. The study was quantitative and employed a descriptive design. The researchers went to Baguio City, La Union, and Pangasinan to gather data, but only eight respondents from Pangasinan participated in the study. Inventory questionnaires were utilized wherein Mean Analysis and Analysis of Variance were used in the analysis and interpretation of data. All the factors namely Altruism, Companionship for One’s Child, Life Dissatisfaction, Desire to Derive Income, Desire to Nurture a Child, Identification with Deprived Children and Need to be Needed affect foster carers to foster care a child. However, there were only four prevalent factors which are Altruism, Life Dissatisfaction, and Desire to Nurture a Child, and Need to be needed. In conclusion, the factors which affect foster carers to foster care a child play a significant role in the child’s welfare and development.
