Services and information

  • Adoption

Requirements to become a foster parent

After deciding to foster, make sure your household members are on board with what will be a life-changing decision to foster. Then, educate yourself about Ohio's requirements for foster parents. Applicants who want to foster or adopt in Ohio must:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Live in a safe and stable home
  • Meet home safety requirements
  • Clear a background check with fingerprinting
  • Provide at least three character references
  • Provide ample space for a foster child in their house or apartment
  • Attend foster parent orientation
  • Take part in required hours of foster parent training
  • Maintain financially stability
  • Prove good health
  • Complete the Home Study process

To apply or ensure you meet the prerequisites, there are two primary Ohio state resources. Contact the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) or a local Public Children's Service Agency (PCSAs).

If you are ready to learn more, contact a local child-placing agency to schedule foster parent information orientation. At orientation, aspiring foster parents learn more about foster parenting responsibilities, navigating the foster system, and the foster application process. If you have questions, orientation is an excellent opportunity to ask questions and meet other potential foster families.

Administrative paperwork can take some time to complete, but having everything prepared will ensure it goes smoothly. It will help the process move along if you gather financial documents ahead of time. These include tax filings and paystubs, which you will need to show as proof of financial stability.

Foster parents in Ohio must also attend 24 hours of pre-service foster parent training. This training teaches foster families about the trauma experienced by all foster children. It also covers how to provide general and specialized care to foster children.

Thank you, Adoption Link for all you do to help all involved in the adoption process. We had a great experience working with your team to adopt our daughter. Your staff was kind, and they were available and prompt at answering any questions. Throughout our process, we could tell that the Adoption Link team truly cares about children, birth parents, and adoptive parents. We appreciated Naomi’s direct, but caring demeanor. We also had a great experience with our social worker, Shawney. Adoption Link made the process straightforward and easy to understand. Because of that, our process was smooth from start to finish. We had a few friends who previously had great experiences working with Adoption Link which made the daunting task of choosing an agency easier for us. We would highly recommend Adoption Link, and we would use them again.

We have had the opportunity to work with Adoption Link a couple of times and have had a wonderful experience. The staff is wonderful and are very organized. We did have an issue during our second adoption which we brought to Naomi's attention and she handled it that day! Overall, they are very personable and would highly recommend this agency if considering adoption.
