Requirements to become a foster parent

Many adults are eligible to become foster parents in their state but do not always realize it. Each state in the U.S. has regulations and requirements for licensing foster parents. Florida does not require parents to own a large home or quit their jobs and become stay-at-home parents. Florida foster parents must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Prove good health and ability to care for a child
  • Maintain a stable income
  • Pass a background screening
  • Finish 30 hours of foster parent training
  • Complete a Home Study

The required training course is free to aspiring foster parents. It helps parents learn how to foster children and become licensed to provide foster care in Florida.

I called there for help for someone who has a job but is living in their car and needs help. The person does not want money just a roof over their head. I have never seen so many places give someone the run around and we can’t help speech, then people wonder why there are so many homeless. The answer is simple whether they are in a vehicle and working or simply on the street nobody wants to help. I think this is a sad world we have come to and the rent is so jacked up that people cannot afford it!!!!

I am eternally grateful for the help they gave me. God himself has kept myself and my service dog safe from my abusive partner and I know through the power of prayer he will continue to do so. You folks have no clue how appreciative I am for what you've done for me.
