The single greatest qualification to become a foster parent is to have a deep desire to help a child who needs you. Beyond that, foster parents are all ages, races and income levels. Foster parents may be married or single, working or retired, renters or homeowners, have children or have no parenting experience at all.
You can get more detailed requirements at one of our monthly information meetings held at each Arrow office, but these are the basic requirements for becoming licensed to foster a child with Arrow:
You and your family are the only ones who can determine if opening your home to a child who needs a temporary home is something you can do. So the first thing you need is information.
No brochure or website can adequately help you make that decision. That’s why we hold webinars twice a week where you can hear all the details about fostering.
