Become a Foster Parent

The first step is to attend an informational meeting. The next step is to fill out an application and complete the 24-hour (eight 3-hour sessions) IMPACT Pre-Service training. The process involves background checks, a reference check and a home study. A home study is a series of interviews with a social worker to obtain information about the family as part of the selection process.

Informational Meetings are held on a regular basis and provide you with additional information you may need to decide whether to become a foster parent or not. All families interested in foster care must attend an Informational Meeting. To find out the next meeting date, contact Bloom Foster Care at 770-460-6652.
