Requirements to become a foster parent

Adults who are new to the fostering process sometimes feel overwhelmed and wonder if they will have support on their journey. Your child-placing agency is the first resource. Social services caseworkers provide aspiring foster parents with various types of support and connections. These include free educational training programs, helplines, and support groups.

It is important that foster parents build their individual support network, too. Connecting with other foster families with more experience is an excellent place to begin. Texas groups offer foster parent meetups; you can search online for the closest one.

The Texas Foster Family Association provides state training, a regional directory of support services, a summer training conference, and more. Membership benefits include getting access to foster care professionals and learning more about ways to become better caregivers. Children of TFFA members can also get assistance through the Scholarship Fund.

Austin Angels is another support organization that strives to assist foster parents and Texas foster children. They offer care packages and gifts for foster children and their caregivers, mentorship options, and education, among other resources. Foster children and teens can learn valuable skills that help prepare them for independent living, as well.

So many “I don’t know” They don’t respond, I’ve done EVERYTHING I was supposed to do! At this point I’m going to do everything I can to get my child back and make sure they don’t have to be in my life when I do!

In the time that we have worked together, I can honestly say how incredible the team at 2ingage is! We have learned so much from you all and have an immense amount of respect for Shirley and Dr. Linda! Truly a team working to make a difference in the child welfare system. Thank you 2ingage team for all you do!

So my stepson was taken away from his mother for being neglectful to him, we had him for nearly a year but my house was always an issue they always had contact with us and keeping us informed of things but my husband and I had decided that he needed better care or a better home. Once they had my stepson in there hands they are unresponsive, and ignore phone calls, to me I feel like from the start they wanted my stepson from the get go. The case workers don't respond like they use to.
