Resource and adoptive parents are a vitally important link in Maine’s child welfare system. Often children in State custody have experienced considerable trauma in their young lives and a caring, loving, and supportive foster home can have a significant positive impact on their lives. While reunification with their biological parents is the primary goal for the majority of children in State custody, there are children for whom reunification is not possible. Children who cannot safely reunify with their parents need the long-term stability and permanency afforded by adoption.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Maine's Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Child and Family Services, is in charge of recruiting and training prospective foster parents. They also place children in supportive homes. As such, you can always turn to your DHSS for help.

You can find educational resources, handbooks, and references on their website. All resource parents must be licensed by the OCFS.

The Maine OCFS has partnered with many child welfare agencies that provide support. A licensed child-placing agency can train new parents and ensure they meet licensure requirements.

Resource parents can also learn about reimbursement for care-related expenses. Examples include safety gates, clothing, school supplies, etc.

Plus, foster families can access information, referrals, peer support groups, mentoring, and respite care.
