What are the age requirements to be a foster parent?

Answer

California State Licensing Regulations require an applicant to be an adult who is at least 18 years of age. However, this is only one factor to be considered. We are also looking for a solid background in parenting children. Such a background is seldom, if ever, present in young adults. As a rule of thumb, we look for people who have attained at least ten years of adulthood.
