You might be the one person who plants a seed of hope in the life of a child in foster care.  You can give encouragement at just the right time, give love and care when it is needed the most and provide structure and consistency a child needs to heal, grow and thrive.

And you won't do it alone. We believe in the age-old saying "it takes a village".  In this day and age, the village needs re-established and we are creating the structures and opportunities to do so. Our staff--with years of experience-- and our community of families will give you close support, empathy, and guidance

Is fostering easy? Not always. Is it worth it? Absolutely.

If you know you want to become a foster parent, print, fill-out, and bring your application to our office and we can expedite the process.  All next steps in the licensing process occur after your application has been approved. 

Licensing Process

Orientation

Meet with a licensing specialist, ask questions, fill out an application and learn if Isaiah's Place is right for you.

Training

Pre-service training consists of 36 hours of applicable topics. These training hours are built around your schedule. 

Home Study

After necessary paperwork is completed, our licensing specialists will complete a home study. The home study consists of two or three home visits and questions to best match foster children to your home. 

Licensure

After completing all licensing requirements, your information will be sent to the state for approval. After you receive your license, you will be eligible for placements immediately.

Another option is becoming Respite Provider.  Respite is when a foster parent asks for a short period of time for a getaway and rest.

 

Respite helps foster parents re-charge so they can sustainably care for kids in their home.  Becoming a respite provider is a great way to get started. You can become a relational connection without the commitment of becoming a foster parent. And you might be a respite provider and eventually want to welcome a child into your home for a longer period of time.
