For Applicants

Thank You!

Thank you for making the commitment to become a licensed Child Foster Care provider. Here is a roadmap for you to follow in the process of obtaining your license.


Orientation sessions are held at regular intervals for potential foster care providers. An information meeting is the initial step in the qualifying process for foster parents. This meeting helps potential foster parents determine whether they want to apply to become foster parents. The meeting lasts about two hours and is for both parents if the household has two parents. The meeting is not suitable for children.
