Frequently asked questions
Q.) Am I responsible for the kid's health care expenses?
A.) All children will have a medical card and be covered at 100%. You will never have to add them to your ins or cover co-pays.. Their health, vision, dental, and mental health will be covered.
Q.) How do I get paid?
A.) We understand that you must receive reimbursement for your services in order to be able to successfully foster a child. We reimburse $20-$48 per day per child. The reimbursement amount varies depending on the level of difficulty of the child
Q.) How long will I have the child?
A.) The foster care system is so unpredictable, you could have the child for a day or have the child for 18 years, and it all depends on the child and the family.
Q.) Is it ok if I'm not married?
A.) You do not have to be married to provide a loving home to a child. We gladly license single, married and same sex couples.
