After you and your family have completed all three stages of the orientation packet, the next step is to complete home visits with individuals on our waiting list for a family match. 

 

The Sponsored Placement Supervisor and team members will arrange with you, your family, and the potential new family member to meet. This is usually arranged at your home and starts with short casual meetings and then lengthens to possible overnight visits over an extended period of time. This is a very important period for everyone– the Sponsored Placement Program wants to ensure that the individual, as well as the family members, are a perfect match before making a final decision. 

 

During these visits, the individual’s case manager, guardian (if applicable), family members, or legal authorized representative may also visit. They will be able to offer you background information of the individual, special needs, and answer any questions that you or your family may have. 

 

At this point, if all parties agree that a suitable match has been found, the case manager will write a letter of recommendation for the move to take place.  A contract will be reviewed, agreed upon, and signed by the provider and Sponsored Placement Supervisor.

Becoming a foster family is very rewarding!
