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.

I worked for MCHS via FLA. I went to MCHS about the treatment of staff, esp. Black staff and students. I informed them that the principal had yelled at students (many times), called students out of their names, put her hands on students and her treatment of staff. Principal yelled at me, she is a micromanager to the extreme, etc. I still came to work and did my job. Nothing happened to the principal. We had a new management come take over, CEN. I informed CEN of my concerns and they told me it would be in my best interest to remain professional because they were keeping the principal. That lets you know nothing would happen. MCHS and CEN assured us this was going to be a smooth transition and that there would be interruption in money. CEN decided not to offer me employment for the upcoming school year. Which is fine and the best decision because we could not come to an understanding. However, they are refusing to pay me my summer pay. Both sides have wiped their hands of the issue. Nobody is willing to stand up for what is right. Beyond disappointing that somebody could of jumped in front of this and prevented this but everyone has refused. They give you scraps and want you to be grateful for it. I can walk away from knowing I did the right thing. You all will have to live with this forever. In this time, when things are priced higher and most people are struggling, I will not be paid my summer pay. Money I earned.

This is the place for music! Anything you want they have or will get it for you in a matter of days. I needed an album for my grand daughter that was on Amazon but would take nearly a month to arrive because it was coming from Korea. I called Dearborn music, they didn't have it in stock but ordered it from their suppliers and I picked it up in two days. Very knowledgeable staff, loads of other good stuff available. I see why they have been in business for years.
