Dear Brother / Sister,
Our religion orders individuals and the state to meet the needs of destitute children who do not live in a family environment. In this context, it is permissible to take care of a needy child as a "foster family" and our religion encourages it.
However, when such a child reaches the age of puberty, if it is a female child, she will be a non-mahram person for the men living in the same house and if it is a male child, he will be a non-mahram person for the women living in the same house. Therefore, it is necessary to be careful about tasattur (hijab) and not being alone with a non-mahram person from the opposite gender.
