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.

I have been a foster parent with this agency for over a decade and after being with a few, this is, by far, the one who cares about the children in their care and the foster parents as well. They go out of their way to provide for their kids in every way possible.

This has been a very difficult transition for my family to receive information (medical) back about my grandsons that were in care with this agency.
Not only did the agent that promise us information for my grandsons medical records etc. were not handled, she was purely for the foster mom to adopt my grandchildren instead of trying to support the children to return to home with their biological mother and family.

Please Beware of this agency!!!

It's very difficult to reach anyone. Even if you just want information on becoming a foster parent, you are given a bunch of names and extensions that just goes to a voicemail.
