Requirements to become a foster parent

The state requires that foster parents get licensed through their local Department of Social Services or a licensed private agency. These sources will be your best form of support. Through them, you'll receive training and have a point of contact for emergencies.

If you ever have questions, reach out to your case manager. They're trained to assist foster families and the children in their care.

The Foster Family Alliance of North Carolina is a statewide association that recruits new parents, provides training, and offers support. You can find training and webinars online. You can also read parenting tips, find your region, and more.

The National Foster Parent Association is a non-profit that provides training and education. Caregivers can also find free online training through the NFPA.

The NC Division of Social Services (NC DSS) is the agency in charge of overseeing the state's child welfare system. NC Kids assists new foster parents with the early stages of the process. You can find children awaiting adoption and access foster care and adoption support services.

It also helps to form connections with other foster families, especially those with years of experience. You may have questions or need advice from them. It can make you feel like you have someone on your side through your journey.

Getting a home study was a requirement for our adoption. We were working with an agency out of state, so we had to find an in state agency for our home study. We looked at a few places and ended up choosing NC Homestudies, for their availability and reasonable fees. They were extremely professional, prompt, and easy to work with. We were nervous about the home study and how it would go, but Joy made us comfortable and not only evaluated our readiness to adopt, but she also made sure we had all the resources we needed and answered all our questions from her experience with adoptions over many years. Out of all the many people we worked during our adoption process, both my husband and I agreed that Joy was our favorite - she was the so supportive and helpful and we were so thankful for her and NC Homestudies, LLC! We have recommended them to our friends who were adopting and would highly recommend them to anyone else.

We worked with NC Homestudies for nearly two years, completing two home studies and five post-placement visits with the adoption of our twins. The team was great, accommodating our need for additional post-placement visits and reports since our adoption was finalized in Texas, which had different regulations regarding the finalization. The team was professional and knowledgeable and helped us navigate the legal side of things as well as provide resources on being new parents.
