Forever Families Foster Care Program services children between the ages of 0 and 20 who have entered the foster care system typically due to abuse and/or neglect. The needs of the children vary greatly based on their own unique set of circumstances, experiences and level of functioning.

Forever Families seeks foster families who can provide a home for one to five children. In some cases, the child may return to their parents or to a relative after their initial placement in foster care. In other cases, the foster families may care for the children until the child can live independently. Forever Families is seeking families who can establish a bond with their foster child that will last a lifetime.

Forever Families is looking for individuals and families who can share their lives with a child in need of a loving home. Our agency needs homes of all races and cultures to meet the needs of the children we service. We welcome and encourage LGBTQ+ individuals and families to apply. We are in need of homes that will be supportive and affirming to all children, regardless of the child’s sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Parents can access the Michigan Foster Care Portal (MFCP), which is a tool that helps expedite licensure. The portal can track progress and list the next steps a foster parent needs to take. The MFCP also contains FAQs and helpful guides for parents.

In addition to online tools, foster families also receive some financial support. How much they receive depends on the child's age and needs. Parents may also be entitled to additional reimbursement that covers care costs.

Plus, foster families can access many local and state-wide support organizations and advocacy groups. These groups provide resources, answer questions, and are happy to help form connections between foster parents.

Your foster care agency is always there if you have questions or concerns. Their goal is to ensure the child's well-being and assist parents through the fostering process and beyond.

Another path you might want to consider is co-parenting with the birth parents. The end goal in most foster cases is to reunite a child with their parents or primary caregiver. You'll work with the birth parents anyway to set up visitations, and co-parenting can make your job easier.

Working further with the birth parents can also make the entire fostering process less stressful for a child. They won't feel as if they have to "choose" between homes and families.

Our family has had the pleasure to work with Forever Families twice. We were foster parents through Macomb County. Both experiences went very well! We worked with Amanda for both our adoptions.

If you are considering being a foster parent, Forever Families is a great place to begin that process. I have worked with other agencies in the past and have had the best experience with Forever Families. The workers are knowledgeable about their jobs and go above and beyond to help and support foster parents and birth families.

We have been fostering since 2018 and have successfully adopted two times. Although the foster system itself can be a rollercoaster ride, the staff at forever Families are knowledgeable, caring and helpful. They have facilitated positive foster placements that we eventually adopted. We are so thankful to them for helping us complete our forever family.
