How do I apply?
Call us today! We will tell you about the process and send you an application. Simply fill out the foster family home application and the foster family survey, submit it to our office, and wait to be contacted by one of our social workers who will begin the screening process for certification.
What is involved in being certified?
Fingerprints for a background check will need to be taken of all people living in your house over the age of 18. Additionally, all those over 18 years of age will be required to have a tuberculosis screening. The certifying social worker must determine that your home is a safe and healthy environment. This includes having a written disaster plan, working smoke alarms, an agreement prohibiting the use of corporal punishment, and other similar requirements, all of which we will help you complete.
