Foster Care


Do I need to have a car? Telephone? Extra bedroom?


Foster homes must have safely operating vehicles that are insured and large enough to transport the entire family.   Foster children will need to be taken for visitation with parents and other family members, to court, medical & dental appointments, school, and extra-curricular activities.  If a foster parent does not have a valid driver’s license, they must present a feasible plan on how the children will be transported to necessary activities.

Foster parents must have phone service and telephone numbers, (land line or cell) that are accurate and unblocked.  Foster parents must be available to receive telephone calls for possible placement at all time.
Each foster child must have his or her own bed and may share a bedroom with only one other child.  When sharing a bedroom, children over the age of five must be of the same gender.
