Requirements to become a foster parent

Start by researching the state requirements for new parents. In Kansas, all foster parents must:

  • Be 21 years or older
  • Maintain financial stability
  • Live in a safe and comfortable home
  • Pass the home inspection
  • Provide enough personal space for a foster child
  • Clear a background check (all adults in the house)
  • Have a valid driver's license and an insured vehicle
  • Finish required foster parent training
  • Complete the Home Study Process

Good foster parenting requires your best effort, but not "perfect" parenting. Spend time to learn about the foster care system and the information given to you during training and orientation. Once you have become a licensed foster parent, focus on your foster child's wants, needs, and overall well-being.

To learn more about becoming a foster parent in Kansas, contact your local child-placing agency. These social service agencies are state-approved to match foster children with licensed foster care homes.

Every foster agency provides orientation, where you will receive information about foster care and how to obtain a license. Orientation will help you decide if fostering a child is the right path for you and your family. If you are married or in a relationship, ask yourselves questions before committing to fostering together.

After orientation, your next step is the family assessment process, including the Home Study. A social worker at your local child-placing agency will help you through every step.

On #KLove Radio today's word from Lori was "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say lthNythibg at all" and I can't help but think that's what political correctness of the 90's was and Massin today's political specter we see a backlash to that political correctness and although I think both counterweight balanced would urge Christians to eir on the side of caution. Thank you for helping pay people's rent and get food for people and I've really enjoyed the gym at St. Francis it's down home and comfodtable and more than on just Sundays. I appreciate a home away from home when my Church is not meeting and yours is and I feel like being sociable.
