Adult Family Foster Care Licensing

Adult Family Foster Home Providers care for adults, 18 years of age and older, who may struggle with emotional, physical or mental limitations that may benefit from assistance from a provider in a family home setting. Providers may assist with arranging additional services and care outside of the actual home, such as attending school, work, medical appointments, etc.

As an Adult Family Foster Care Provider, it is your responsibility to provide a home-like setting, care, supervision and companionship to those whom live within the home. Along with providing care within the home, the provider will assist with finding and participating in opportunities for people to do as much as possible for themselves in the community. It is most important that the family can provide a safe and nurturing environment.
