HOW TO BECOME A FOSTER PARENT
By contacting our office to let us know your interest, we will then schedule an orientation.
The orientation will consist of the following:
Introduction, who we are, JC Family Services objectives, Foster Parent objectives, benefits of being a foster parent, a tour of the office, meeting staff, and owners. Once you complete the orientation and decide that you want to become a foster parent, you will be required to attend pre-certification training.
You will be required to complete a County Foster Parent application. The process will consist of a county, FBI and State background check, and CPR certification. This approval process will take a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks. During this period, we will schedule an in-home study to ensure you meet the foster care requirements.
