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.

(Translated by Google) First of all, I would like to say that I applied here for refugee aid when I arrive in the USA, which takes a long time to arrive. When they call you for the first time, they only give you 2 months. You get tired of calling by phone to clarify your doubts and report a change of address and so on and they never answer you by phone, the receptionist suggests that you go in person, even explaining that you have a newborn baby. When I had the opportunity to go with my baby a few days after birth, the attention was disastrous, they practically left me speechless because the lady who attended to me turned her back and left while I asked her some questions. They told me that they will assign me a social worker who I only had to wait for her call and it's been more than a week and I haven't received anything. In short, I am not convinced by the work they do.

Primeramente decir que aplique en este lugar para la ayuda d refugiados cuando llegue a USA la cual tarda mucho en llegar, cuando te llaman por primera vez solo te aportan 2 meses. Te cansas de llamar por teléfono para aclarar tus dudas y informar de algún cambio de dirección y demás y nunca te atienden por teléfono jamás, la recepcionista te sugiere q vayas en persona, aun explicándole q tienes un bebe recién nacido. Cuando tuve la oportunidad de ir con mi bebé a días d nacido la atención fue desastrosa, prácticamente me dejaron con la palabra en la boca porque la señora que me atendió dio la espalda y se fue mientras yo le preguntaba algunas dudas. Me dijeron q me asignarán una trabajadora social que solo tenía q esperar su llamada y hace más de una semana y no recibo nada. En fin no me convence el trabajo que hacen.
