Wanted-Foster/Adoptive Parent(s)

To be an adoptive parent, one has to be a foster parent initially. There are great and rewarding experiences in helping others and especially a child in need. You are most welcome to send a short email or explore options that fit your family needs. Single people who are responsible are encouraged to apply as well.

Adults in adoption only must both first become certified foster parents. There are some prerequisites to becoming a foster parent. The most important is have a heart for others and love that transcends all boundaries. Once you are determined in your heart that you want to become a foster parent, and then you have made the right choice. Below are some requirements included, but are not limited to:

  • Must be financially self-supporting or a source of income
  • Complete application forms.
  • Attend an 8-hour orientation training program taught by the CCAAFP staff.
  • All adults in the home must be fingerprinted and obtain a criminal record clearance and a child abuse index clearance.
  • Have a TB test, showing negative results.
  • Obtain a general health clearance.
  • Receive CPR & First Aid training (infant, child & adult CPR).
  • Water Safety Training is necessary if there is a body of water such as a pool, spa or pond on the property, or if the children swim in an area where there is no lifeguard on duty.
  • A current DMV printout showing proof of a valid driver’s license.
  • Proof of auto insurance.
  • Home study evaluation and interviews completed by CCAAFP staff.

CCAAFP provides the support of a professional social worker who is a resource to the foster parent(s).

All CCAAFP foster children are given professional counseling, medical and dental care, a monthly spending allowance and a monthly clothing allowance.

For those interested in becoming foster parents, there is no discrimination on who can or cannot be a foster parent. Foster parent(s) come from all races, religions, and cultures. Couples, single or a blended family are welcome to be foster and adoptive parent(s) if they are financially stable and have enough space in their home for a child.
