Overview of Process

  1. The first step is to pray about becoming a foster parent. Is God calling you to foster? Opening your hearts and your home to children in foster care is something every family should thoughtfully and prayerfully consider. Have you shared your calling to foster care ministry with any of your church leaders and would you be able to provide a pastoral reference? If you have more specific questions, reach out to 4KIDS Treasure Coast!

  2. Prospective foster parents are required by the State of Florida to take a foster parent training course called CARE. These classes are hosted by our 4KIDS Treasure Coast team at various days and times throughout the year and prepare you to open your home.

  3. The licensing process includes home visits, background checks and other important steps all foster families take. Our 4KIDS Foster Care team members will guide you through this journey and prepare you and your family to care for kids!
