Too often, due to no fault of their own, children are removed from their homes because they are unsafe. As you can imagine, this is a confusing and challenging time for many children. Whenever possible, our network of providers work hard to locate family members or close friends in hopes that they are willing and capable of providing a safe and familiar home during this time; however, sometimes this isn’t an appropriate option.

That’s where safe, loving, and committed foster parents come in by making the transition easier and providing a safe space, both mentally and physically, for children who have already experienced so much. Foster parents are integral members of a child’s “team” and ensure all the child’s needs are met and may help strengthen the biological family. As a foster parent you will have the opportunity to work with the child’s team, advocating for their best interest, get to know a child in your community who needs you and even attend some dance recitals or help study for spelling quizzes along the way.

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.
