Becoming a foster parent is an exciting and tremendous decision. It’s a promise to a child that you will consistently be there for their social, emotional, and therapeutic needs. In order to be considered for becoming a foster parent, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Must live in a home or apartment with enough capacity for children
  • Must be 21 years old or older
  • Must be financially self-sufficient (part-time or full-time employment)
  • Must pass a medical physical to verify that you are in good health
  • Can be married, single, or living with a partner
  • Must be clear of felony or child abuse convictions
  • Must possess a valid California driver’s license and auto insurance
  • Must have a CPR and First Aid certificate (offered through Kids Kasa)

 

To ensure the success of care for the children, we arrange to provide all of our parents with the following:

  • 24/7 on-call staff
  • A comprehensive training program
  • Membership of the Child Welfare League of America
  • Preference of age, gender, and ethnicity of the children they want to help
  • Monthly ongoing training sessions
  • Reimbursement of costs associated with the care of the child
  • Comprehensive home auditing by our staff to ensure compliance with state regulations
  • A team-based approach to working with foster children

 

If you meet the preceding requirements and are still interested in becoming a foster parent, take the first step by completing our Foster Parent Application. Please email, mail or fax us your completed application.

Together, we can be the difference, one child at a time.
