Requirements to become a foster parent

New Hampshire foster parents are entitled to support payments. These help cover the costs of caring for a foster child. Let's take a look at some of the available benefits:

Support Payments

In New Hampshire, foster parents receive reimbursement for daily costs. This includes board, meals, clothing, and other everyday expenses. The pay rate varies depending on the foster child's age and needs, but base payments begin at $24.48/day, up to $29.49/day.

Children with special needs are also entitled to additional specialized funds, up to $36.86/day. You can learn more about expense payments for New Hampshire foster parents by clicking here.

Medical and Dental Coverage

Children in the New Hamshire foster system are covered for dental and medical care under the Medicare system.

However, it's up to the foster parents to book all necessary medical appointments and make sure the foster child attends them.

Training and Support Groups

Alongside mandatory foster parent training, there are additional courses available. This extra training helps foster parents excel and provide the best possible environment for the children in their care.

Foster parents are also invited to attend local support groups, where they can meet their peers and talk about all aspects of being a New Hampshire foster parent.

If you have Mental Health issues then don’t bother working for them specially Easter Seals in NH. They let me go because of my Mental Health. I was having a really hard time but I was getting the support from them, my therapist and support person. They still let me go.
When I first started there everyone was so nice. I had a few people bully me but they took care of that right away. Then came my issue with my Mental Health.
Easter Seals NH is not a place to work.

Sad to see your rochester employee, MARILYN is showing acts of ableism. Considering what this company stands for. So sad to see her calling the police on a kid with special needs. Extremely unprofessional and unfair to him. This is so unacceptable and unethical. Hope to see some sort of action used against her. He has epilepsy and she EASILY could’ve caused a seizure because of the stress she put on him. He didn’t get a chance to shovel her driveway because of the snowstorm we had. Marilyn saw this and said she saw him laughing at her for hammering the ice off of her porch. He wasn’t even there, she did this simply because she knew he goes there. I’m really hoping this is taken care of.
