HOW TO BECOME A FOSTER PARENT

REQUIREMENTS AND PROCESS
Foster parents must be at least 21 years old, pass background clearances, and be in good physical health. Our most successful foster parents are open-minded, dependable, patient and willing to try different parenting styles for children with different needs. Having a flexible schedule, being tolerant and demonstrating the ability to work as a member of our team are all important qualities for success.

The process to become a KidsPeace foster parent involves five or six visits to your home over a 10 to 12 week period. During those visits, KidsPeace staff members gather paperwork, interview all family members, inspect the home for safety, and fully explain the responsibilities of foster parenting. In office or at home training is required prior to approval. Our mutual screening process helps both sides determine if foster parenting is right for you and the characteristics of children that will best fit with your family’s lifestyle and ability.

WHO ARE THE CHILDREN
Children aged birth to 21 may need foster care for just a few days, or may be in placement for longer than a year. Foster families willing and able to accommodate sibling groups are in high demand, as are those who are able to take older children and teens. Some children are stepping down from residential treatment; some have developmental delays; many have suffered abuse; others have never benefited from expectations or structure; most have built walls around themselves to keep out the hurt; and all have lost their homes and families. Our training and support to foster parents is valuable when helping a child who has known such pain and upheaval.
