The work of Agape continues. Even during a worldwide pandemic, the need for loving homes for children being removed due to abuse and neglect didn't wane. In fact, the pandemic exacerbated many issues, worsening family circumstances. Many of our services had to be adapted to include safety measures yet we continued to accept placements. We also continued to witness strengthening of families and the creation of lifelong connections.

As the Executive Director of Agape, I remain committed to serving community children and families. The need for loving foster families and adoptive homes is even more urgent now. There are over 11,000 children in Foster Care in the state of Georgia and not enough loving homes to care for each one. In addition, changes in legislation for both foster care and private adoption means the need for more families will continue to rise. Please consider partnering with Agape and becoming part of the solution.

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.
