Choose Regular or Therapeutic
If you have experience working with children with special needs or a medical background, and have time to manage extra appointments, you may consider therapeutic fostering. Children in therapeutic foster care require a higher level of care.
Choose a Licensing Agency
To Be Assigned
The agency you choose should fit your family as they will be your support system as a foster family. You will be assigned a worker at that agency, who will help you through the application process and will be assigned to your family as long as you are fostering.
