Many times when children come into foster care there is very little notification of when this will occur. Having foster parents available and homes certified ensures that the transition for the child into foster care is as smooth as possible. If you are thinking of becoming a foster parent, relative placement or have questions, please contact the Recruitment and Retention Specialt at 800-922-1399 x-1275.

To apply to become a foster parent, please print and fill out the Foster Home Application and Attachments. All adults residing in the home or visiting the home frequently must submit to fingerprint based criminal background checks and child welfare checks. Arrangements for fingerprinting must be made through the certifier, at the time of application.
Please send copies of the following with your completed application:
- State issued drivers licenses/ identification of all persons in the home who have one.
- Vehicle insurance for all drivers in the household, covering all vehicles in which children will be transported.
- Social Security cards for all adults over 18 in the household.
NOTE: All applications must be mailed or dropped off in the office. Emailed applications will not be accepted.
