Requirements to become a foster parent

You'll still have support and guidance when you receive a foster placement. Kentucky has continued training and can connect new foster parents with experienced families through the Foster Parent Mentor Program.

Having access to an experienced foster family is invaluable. You'll be able to connect with other adults who have advice and can provide coaching to make your parenting journey easier.

Your local child-placing agency is one of your best sources of information and foster parenting services.

Nonprofit child welfare organizations approved by the state recruit resource parents, provide resources, and offer training and general support. When you attend the informational orientation and parent training, you'll receive books and resources that tell you more about the many available foster parent support groups.

My brother and I were kids at DCCH from 1990-1994. My time there was the best of my life. I think about the children’s home all the time. The workers we had there were absolutely amazing. I can remember the last visit I got with my mom while there. I tried to play it off like it was no big deal and I was doing good with it until ms crow and sister Jean mari came to check on me. As soon as they walked in I lost it. They both grabbed me and held me like I was their child. I will never forget that. My brother ended up getting adopted and I wasn’t ready for a new family so I opted to stay at the home. I am now 39 years old with a family of my own. I owe so much to the children’s home. What I wouldn’t do to meet some of the staff I had while there!!! Love DCCH so much❤️❤️❤️

I am a foster parent and have been fostering with the DCCH for over two years. I can't say enough good things about the DCCH. The support and training you receive from the staff is unparalleled. They truly care about helping the children placed in your home as well as making sure the foster parents feel supported and appreciated.
