How we connect prospective Foster Parents to Foster Care Professionals (recruiters) near them
Foster Care is a very local challenge. Therefore, in the US Foster Care is organized at the State level or County level. Our goal is to have a group of waiting foster parents trained,licensed at the local level. So that no child has to wait for foster care.
If you are considering becoming a foster parent you are a wonderful and caring person. You have many questions and need to talk to dedicated foster care professionals (recruiters) near you. These professionals can walk you through the training and licensing process. Their organizations stand to support you through the fostering process including the stipend as applicable. Everyone is committed to make you a successful foster parent.
If you are a US State Foster Care Program Manager or a State Foster Agency, here is how our process works: You decide on the dates (at least 30 days in advance) when you want to meet local prospective foster parents. Tell us the kind of parents you are looking for eg, therapeutic, respite, kinship etc. Through our proven digital marketing methods we have high quality prospective foster parents sign up for your virtual event on our technology platform.
Thanks to Child Welfare Information Gateway of the US Administration for Children & Families for listing us as a National Foster Care Organization.
To celebrate National Foster Care Month 2021, we had two virtual events for Connecticut prospective foster parents in May 2021 on May 19 and May 29.
Thanks to the prospective foster care parents and foster care professionals who made our inaugural virtual events a success!
