Home / Questions about being a Licensed Foster Parent?
FOSTER HOME LICENSING:
Foster home licensing is a process of evaluating a family and their home to determine if it follows state guidelines for foster care. This process is a very comprehensive one that typically takes three to six months. Some circumstances may cause the process to be shorter or longer. The steps involved in becoming a licensed foster parent may sometimes be challenging, but it is a necessary one to provide for the safety of the child. Once you complete the process, we hope you will find your experience in helping a foster child to be rewarding and satisfying.
We provide foster care for children whose birth parents’ rights have been terminated; these children are available for adoption. When a foster care child is referred to our agency, we assign a foster care caseworker to work with the child and their foster family to ensure the child’s needs (safety, health, education, and progress towards permanency) are better met. Community referrals for the child are provided as needed.
