Become a Foster Parent

Pre-Service Training

A required 36 hours of training is needed to obtain a 2 year-certification. We also require first aid, CPR, and Crisis Prevention and Intervention training. Pre-Service training is designed to ensure foster parents are equipped to meet the needs of the youth placed in their home.

Home Study

A home study will be completed by one of our licensed assessors to establish each family's ability to care for foster children. This study examines a family's financial stability, health, home safety, criminal history and previous experience working with children. Additional, our assessors will conduct an interview with each family member of the household.
