STEPS TO BECOMe 

A FOSTER PAREnt

TO BECOME A FOSTER PARENT YOU​
  • Can be married, single, widowed or divorced

  • Must be over 21 years old

  • Have a monthly income that is enough to pay monthly expenses

  • Pass background checks:  criminal history, child protective services, and driving record

  • Need to have a physical exam and TB test or screening that shows that each household member is healthy and free of communicable diseases

 
THE APPROVAL PROCESS INVOLVES 
  • An orientation session that is scheduled at your convenience

  • Pressley Ridge Training that gives you the knowledge and skills to parent foster children 

  • Home visits to make sure the home meets licensure standards

  • A meeting at an Intercept office to introduce foster parents to Treatment Foster Care staff and review paperwork requirements.

  • Completing the Willingness to Foster Scale to tell us about your preferences about age, gender, race/ethnicity as well as what needs or behaviors you could work with

 
AFTER APPROVAL, WE SUPPORT YOU BY
  • Matching placements with your preferences and abilities

  • Maintaining low caseloads so our workers can make frequent contact with foster parents and provide assistance as needed

  • Offering 24/7 on call support

  • Arranging respite on an emergency or planned basis

  • Paying foster parents a monthly reimbursement that is based on the child’s age as well as the child’s needs and  behaviors.  This is not income and is not reported on your taxes.

  • Providing monthly foster parent training.  This is a great opportunity to meet other foster parents and gain additional information about foster parenting.

  • Intercept Health's LifeBridge Continuum of Care connects parents to additional support services

  • Access to local foster parent support groups
