Family Care Home Responsibilities

As a family care parent you have many responsibilities to a number of different individuals: the child placed in your home, the agency, the child’s biological family, the Resource team and your own family. Your goal as a family care parent is to ensure the child/children are provided with excellent care while reinforcing the belief that children and youth have the right to safety, security, continuity, consistency, as well as a loving home. A family care parent will operate as a parent, a behavior management specialist, a mentor,a guide, a protector, a team member, an advocate, a teacher, and as a caregiver. This is quite the role and one that we are in need of.
The process the Family Care Orientation begins with completing the following forms:

  • An application to the program
  • Criminal Record Check (everyone 18 and over are required to complete a criminal record check)
  • Medical Report from your doctor
  • 3 References
  • Criminal Record Review

Once these are complete and submitted to the Resource Social Worker, a Home Study Assessment will begin. The Family Care Home Study Assessment will be based on the following:

  • Your family history
  • History as it relates to childcare
  • Child Care Experience
  • Motivations and reasons to foster

Upon completion of all forms an assessment will be completed and submitted for approval. The applicant will then be notified.
