Inquire, Apply, and Background Check
Contact our foster parent recruitment specialists to start the process!
Training and Home Study
After your application has been approved, you will attend a state-mandated training followed by a series of home visits in order to get to know your family better.
You will be able to set the pace for how quickly to proceed through this important step.
Licensing and Matching
If the background check, training and home study are completed, and your family is a good fit for the IFC program, you will officially become a licensed foster parent! Your family resource coordinator will work with your team to match you with a youth in care.
Now the real journey begins! You will be closely supported by a team of professionals as you welcome a new family member. This partnership will continue as we collectively work to empower the youth toward reaching their full potential and the goal of living an independent and fulfilling life.
