Family Life Services is a Christian-based, not-for-profit organization that is devoted to changing one life and saving another through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are funded through churches and private contributors in our area. Family Life Services is operated by volunteers under the supervision of Marlana Mills, the Executive Director, and our Board of Directors.

Family Life Services has grown into a mature ministry with many programs that you can explore. Each program and service grows from our desire to share God’s love as well as His clear teaching that each individual is unique and important in His eyes. Over time we have developed a new way to help families and individuals by encountering them in a non-judgmental way and working to help them in practical ways. These acts of love are used by God to accomplish His purpose as we serve HIM.

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.
