The first step will be to contact us stating your interest in becoming a foster care parent. You can do this by contacting a staff member and one can be mailed to you. Or if you are in the area, you may stop in to the Human Services Department to request one.
Background Checks & References:
Once the application is received the staff will be working on the background checks and other information. During this time, the staff will also schedule a home visit with you and your family living in the household. This home visit is to get to know you and your family better and do a home study.
Those applying to be foster parents must complete a six hour Pre-Placement training before any placements can be placed in their house.
Issue/Denial of License:
Once all the background checks, references, and Pre-Placement training have been completed, the staff will either issue or deny the foster home license.
