Requirements to become a foster parent

There are myths and misconceptions about what you need to qualify as a foster parent.

Foster parent requirements vary by state. Parents must be at least 21 years of age in Arkansas. However, there cannot be more than a 45-year age difference between the child and the parent.

Marriage is not a requirement for fostering. Single individuals may apply.

Every foster parent in Arkansas must:

  • Pass a background check
  • Have a physical exam
  • Complete the Arkansas Home Study
  • Complete required training classes
  • Pass the home inspection
  • Attend face-to-face interviews with a state foster advocate
  • Maintain financial stability

In addition, foster homes must have enough room for the foster child. This includes 50 square feet of bedroom space for personal belongings.

Reach out to an Arkansas child-placing representative for additional information.
