We build child & family well-being by designing and delivering high-quality learning opportunities to caregivers, parents and professionals.

Children’s Alliance is excited to partner with non-profits, state agencies, and international organizations to implement learning solutions that help families and advance service programs.

Most of the children who are separated from their families and need foster care are over the age of 8, or they are part of a sibling group. As a foster parent, you can strengthen a child's community and family connections, nurturing them during some of the most challenging times in their lives. Not only will you help some of our most vulnerable, but you will grow, learn, and expand your life in ways you can’t imagine

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.
