Ready for Life is a Redding-based Foster Family Agency with over 20 years of experience. Our agency was founded because of one family's compassion for children. Since 2001, Ready for Life Foster Family Agency, a private non-profit, faith-based, agency has been committed to providing safe and loving homes for children in Northern California, including Shasta, Tehama, Trinity, and Siskiyou County.


Ready for Life lives up to its name. All along the process each person I met and worked with helped me to feel ready for life as a foster/adoptive parent."
