FOSTER CARE/ADOPTION SERVICES

Children (newborn -17) are in need of homes and individuals who will provide a loving and stable home for them. Wolverine Human Services will help you facilitate the process of becoming a Wolverine Human Services foster care or adoptive parent.

WHS MISSION STATEMENT

In everything we do, our mission remains the same: “Helping Children and Families to be Victors.”

Our purpose is to offer the most appropriate settings and most effective service providers to children, their families and their communities. We take part in a mutual effort assisting those in need to overcome social and economic barriers, to capitalize on their personal strengths, and to contribute to their own healing. Our approach is eclectic and is founded on the premise of “unconditional” care. Wolverine’s continuum of services and effective network of referral sources provide a responsive and cost-effective system accessible at the community level.

We continue to use new treatment approaches, to reach out and collaborate with other services providers, and to utilize input from our many clients, constituents, funders, and supporters.

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.
