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.

Visits went well. Good clean office and outside areas clean Bathrooms clean. Friendly staff. The only thing that keeps me from giving a 5 star is telehealth. There is nothing like having a human actually talking to you instead of a computer screen. My little one has downs syndrome and can not understand why we have to talk to a tv. 3-2023 Visits are going better, getting used to her Dr. not being in person. Opening up more. Starting to talk to her more and answer more questions instead of me having to do all the talking.

Went here to be seen and waited for an hour in half which I expected, all for them to let some women go in front of me and than tell me they didn't have any more appointments. I had already been there a couple days prior and for tired of waiting because I never got called back. TOTALLY DID ME WRONG. 🖕🏼🖕🏼 IS ALL I can say nicely. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

I was taken here in December 2021 for emergency sessions. The therapists are great, especially Shaleena! The doctors on the other hand…Dr Patel is more concerned with doodling than listening to her patients. Had to tell her several times the exact same thing because she wasn’t even looking at me. The next doctor they gave me wrote me a script for medication I’m allergic to. She knew this upfront and said, “just keep an eye out for a rash, then the faster you get to the hospital the better.”
