Requirements to become a foster parent

There are many services on hand to support those who foster children in Mississippi. Let's take a look at what's available for caregivers:

Support Payments

In Mississippi, foster parents receive a daily board payment from the Division of Family and Children's Services (DFCS) to help pay for the foster child's board, clothing, and personal allowances. These payments vary and can be between $22.83 and $51.55, depending on the child's age, situation, and needs.

Foster children who have special needs that are not covered by their board payment or monthly allowance can receive up to $100 per month, as necessary. However, this is not a guaranteed monthly allowance and is only provided on a case-by-case basis.

Medical and Dental Coverage

Many children in foster care qualify for medical and dental Medicaid coverage.

The foster parents have the obligation to arrange and accompany the child to all medical and dental appointments. This ensures their overall health and wellness.

Training and Support Groups

Foster parents have access to extra training and support groups. These resources give a platform to foster parents and allow them to interact with others who have experience with the distinctive challenges fostering can pose.

This agency have the funding right now to help with people getting on their feet under certain circumstances. I reached out to this agency for help with rental deposit. When ever I would call a different worker will answer the phone and would have no record of me ever contacting them for assistance. So after a month of trying to get assistance I was told that They would need to get a w4 form and letter from the leasing company stating where I would be leasing .They act as if they emailed the leasing office to get those documents and went as far as to telling me that they personally drove by the office and no one would open the door. So they never received the documents and I never heard from them again. I’m really puzzled and really got the Impression that they really didn’t want to help me . After calling and playing the waiting game with this agency I had to use all the money I had and borrowed money that I have no way of paying back to pay the deposit myself because the apartment manager couldn’t hold the apartment any longer without a deposit I was offered another apt but that would’ve meant me paying another application fee and them running my credit again . if you are needing assistance i wish you the best. Don’t let depression get the best of you God will see you through.
