Choices For Life of Georgia’s Specialty Foster Care (SFC) program provides prescriptive care to families and children so that both can be restored to health and optimum use of the child’s and family’s strengths. It is specialized foster care for children and youth with multiple psychological, social, and emotional needs who can accept and respond to close relationships within a family setting, but whose special needs require more intensive or specialty service than are found in traditional foster care settings.

Requirements to become a foster parent

The DHS assists foster families with placement and ensures the child adjusts well to their new environment. Whether you have years of parenting experience or are relatively new to the idea, they have many support options for families. You can find plenty of information on the DHS/DFCS website or call them for more assistance.

Your local licensed child placement agency also places children in the foster system with carefully matched parents. Although foster care is temporary, it's crucial to find the right fit. That's why parents get a say in age range and gender.

There are also many state support groups for foster families that provide educational resources, services, and more. Connecting with these organizations and adding to your personal support network will be invaluable.

One of the best ways to become a better parent, whether you plan on fostering a child short-term or adopting, is to read as much as you can about Georgia's foster system. For instance, recently proposed bills would help to streamline parts of the state's foster care placement system.

You can find plenty of information available online for free as well. Blogs, podcasts, and videos are all incredibly useful ways to obtain new information about fostering.

Sarah Breeden takes clients that work against your family members in order to human traffick our kids through the foster system for wealthy clients or some sort of profit . If you feel like you're being investigated or entrapped by this person just know she gets paid to enslave your children. Instead of helping you with your children shes trying to help herself to your children. She profits from taking your kids. If she comes around your family you should avoid her and ask for someone else. Her investigative style is to manipulate you. Also do not accept gifts from her , like elephants , she is watching you with it. The lies and secrecy are way off, trust your gut. She really isbt into helping with families shed rather tear them apart for profit.

Not recommended to work for this organization. They do not do what they say they are going to do, they are rude and they will lie to your face.
