ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A non-profit is looking for more foster parents.

Lutheran Services of Georgia held a foster care orientation on Tuesday night at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Prospective parents must be over 21 if they're married, over 25 if they're single and they must pass background checks.

Recruiters said Georgia is currently in a crisis with more than 11,000 kids in foster care, and not nearly enough parents.

"Caring for those children who need us the most is one of the biggest jobs whether you're religious, whatever their purpose is in this life is to make sure are children are taking care of from birth so they can be wonderful, loving adults," said Lutheran Services of Georgia Recruiter Lauren Welch.

The next foster care group orientation will be March 14th at 5:30pm at Trinity Lutheran Church.
