PROCESS TO BECOME A FOSTER PARENT

Of all the key partners in the local child welfare system, none is more valued today than our foster parents. We encourage you to consider becoming one of the exceptional people who make an extraordinary contribution to the community by providing a temporary, but always nurturing and loving, foster home to children in care. 

Here is the step-by-step process:



Get your questions about fostering answered by calling the Foster Care Recruitment Hotline in Broward County at 954.414.6001 and in Palm Beach County at 561.352.2501 or complete the on-line information form.


You will then be linked to a foster home management agency who will guide you through the process of becoming a licensed foster parent.


You will attend pre-service training class prior to becoming a foster parent. During this class, you will be introduced to the foster care system and learn how to care for a foster child.


While attending the pre-service training class, you will complete the other foster care licensing requirements, including a home study and a background check.


Once the licensing process is completed, you will be prepared and ready to welcome foster children into your home.
