We value the right of each child to live in a secure, loving, and permanent family environment where his/her emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual needs are fulfilled.

We believe in the effective integration of the Christian faith and professional practice in all agency services. We value marriage as the covenant relationship between one man and one woman. We believe that human life, from conception, is to be held sacred with all of our services being life-affirming in their purpose and impact. We value excellence in services to all clients including those from various racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.

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

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.
