Anyone, 19 or older, who wants to share their home and life with a child, can apply to become a Family Care Home. It is not necessary to own your own home and your financial situation will not be a barrier.
You will work with a recruitment resources social worker who will guide you through the application process which includes the following steps:
Attending an information session
Attending the Pre-Service Orientation Training
Completing an application package
Providing written consent for a Criminal Record Check, Driver’s Abstract and PCC
Providing personal and employer references
Completing a medical exam with your doctor
Participating (along with your family members who live in the home) in an interview with a resources social worker.
