Requirements to become a foster parent

Many do not realize the need for new resource families in California. The number of foster kids outnumber the foster families who can provide short or long-term care. Foster advocates work hard to find places for these children, but it is not easy.

The latest 2021 report from the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) report in California says there are:

  • 47,871 kids in California's foster care system
  • 22,892 who entered foster care
  • 15,386 foster kids awaiting adoption
  • California foster kids across all ages, with a median of 8 years
  • 33% whose foster child case plans include adoption

A child's median time in the California foster care system is over a year at 16.8 months. 13% spend 3-4 years in foster care.

California needs foster parents to take in multiple children if they have the time and energy to care for them. Sibling groups often need care, and it is essential to support these family bonds. In California, it is challenging to find homes for teenagers, though they need stable environments and reliable adults to support them.

Please do not go through this agency, my mom passed away and they took my foster child out because I was late with some paperwork. I submitted all the paperwork but my mother was in ICU for 2 weeks. The doctors told our family she was going to pass. I stayed by her side through the end. These heartless agency did not even bother to ask me did I need assistance, a card or nothing instead removed my children that was with me for over a year. I was told if I go through the county instead of them they would discertify me. I was threatened that I would get a bad recommendation of U was to go to the county. This is so terrible, I am a great foster parent I raised two children from 5 years old to adulthood. This is so sad because there is a big need for foster parents and you have an agency like this really does not have the childrens best interest at heart
