Requirements to become a foster parent

Children in foster care go through incredibly stressful situations. When child welfare has to remove them from their homes, the kids face uncertainty. One of the first questions is wondering where they will live.

To become a foster care parent in Delaware, you must follow a series of steps. First, you need to contact an agency.

Then, you must attend an information session and fill out an application. After that, you will need to complete training and undergo a home assessment. Finally, once you complete all these steps, you will earn certification as a foster care parent.

In Delaware, foster parents must:

  • Be age 21 or older
  • Prove financial stability
  • Complete the required training course
  • Pass a criminal background check and fingerprint screening
  • Complete the Home Study
  • Provide a spare bedroom (for children of one gender)
  • Confirm the parent's good health
  • Live in a safe environment

If you meet the requirements, contact your local foster agency or department of human services. They can help you and other family members enroll in foster orientation.
