Have you ever thought about opening your heart and your home to a foster child? Each week, children in our Western Illinois area need a safe and loving home. Chaddock is consistently rated as one of the top foster care agencies in the state of Illinois. Foster parents shape lives and in the process experience both the challenges and rewards that come with the task. You don’t need to be perfect to provide a welcoming, safe home for a child - you just need to share the belief that every child deserves a chance and be willing to share your love with those who are truly in great need.

If you are married, single, male, female, young, old, with no children, grown children, children at home, living in town, on the farm, in a big house, or renting an apartment, Chaddock can help you take that next step to become the family a child needs.

Requirements to become a foster parent

You must meet minimum requirements to provide foster care for children in Illinois. To become a foster parent, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Attend foster parent orientation
  • Pass a background check
  • Finish 30 hours of foster parent training
  • Complete the Home Study
  • Provide at least three references
  • Clear a physical exam
  • Maintain financial stability

Foster families must be able to provide a safe and comfortable home for a child. You must provide room for the child to have a bed and enough space for personal belongings.

Foster parents do not need to be married or have a partner. However, if married, couples must show a stable marriage of at least one year before they can foster a child in Illinois.

Foster parents need to meet a child's basic care needs, such as providing meals and clothing. Foster families must also support a foster child's education and assist them in developing social skills.

Contact the DCFS or a local licensed child-placing agency to learn more or begin the fostering approval process.

They helped our family through a rough period. Unfortunately, most of the improvements didn't last, and they didn't feel like they could provide additional help when we asked a few years later, which was frustrating.

As a direct care staff for almost 15 years, I will say Chaddock has been working hard to retain employees. Chaddock has developed a system to not just listen to staff but to actually "hear" our needs. Working for a "Faith based" organization is very important to me as well!!
