Who are the children in Rhode Island state care waiting for adoption? They are children, much like other children, who need love, guidance, and a sense of belonging that only a family or other permanent connection can provide.

They are children with many strengths and talents waiting to be nurtured. They are diverse in race, ethnicity, and age. They are beautiful children.

Requirements to become a foster parent

The Department of Children, Youth & Families (DCYF) and the private agencies connected with it offer many resources. If you foster through a private agency, you'll receive support from them.

Foster families in Rhode Island qualify for the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). This program subsidizes childcare costs for families caring for foster youth under age 13. Some resources are also available for kids with special needs after age 13 as well.

Contact your private foster care agency or DCYF caseworker to learn more about these options.

Parents that need a break from fostering due to an emergency or other reason can also access respite care. This type of care involves one foster family taking care of another licensed family's child for a brief period.

Resource families receive a foster care maintenance payment to help with a child's needs. The amount varies depending on the child's age and service level of care.

Finally, the DCYF or licensed private agency will help you through the process, provide training, offer assistance managing medical and dental services, etc.
