You may work full time and have foster
children over the age of 5 years. We require that for children 5 and
younger that an
at home parent is available. Infants and toddlers need the full time care
provided by an at-home parent.
Additionally, foster parents who work full time usually are not
available when social workers need to place children in foster homes; and, full
time employment restricts the time foster parents are available to foster
children for whom they provide care. Foster
parents are also responsible for providing transportation to family visits,
doctor visits, therapy visits as required by child’s needs.
