The ideal first step is to support a Foster Family before making a deeper commitment. Are you someone who has the capacity to do the following?
Mentor and encourage children who are in foster care.
Provide childcare, transportation, meals, and other forms of day/evening support for a Foster Family two to three times each month.
Pursue the needed approvals (background check, fingerprinting, driver’s license, automobile insurance, etc.).
Attend a two-hour training session prior to your first assignment to a Care Community.
