Becoming a foster parent is one of the most rewarding experiences for a family. Caring for children who have been abused or neglected and being a role model for the biological parents who are working to be reunified with their children is the ultimate public trust. If you are ready for the commitment, then you must complete a 30 hour pre-service parenting program (once a week for 3 hours) called PRIDE. The process from the time to receive a license depends on the circumstances by averages 3-5 months.

If you are interested in learning more about the process, please call 1 (855) 933-KIDS (5437) or email for an informational packet and schedule of classes in your area.
