Caring for children who have been abused or neglected and being a role model for biological parents working to reunify with their children is a significant responsibility and, ultimately, a matter of public trust.

To qualify as a potential foster parent you must:

  • Attend an orientation.
  • Complete 20 to 30 hours of foster parent training.
  • Have a child abuse and criminal background check.
  • Participate in a home inspection.
  • Participate in a home study to review your readiness for fostering.
