Information Meetings

The first step in finding out more about being a foster or adoptive parent in the State of Idaho is by attending an Information or Orientation Meeting.  This event will give you a basic understanding of:

1.  Who the children who need care are

2. The roles and responsibilities of foster/adoptive parents

3.  The process you will need to go through to become licensed to foster or adopt

During this meeting, you will hear from experienced foster and adoptive families about the rewards and real challenges of fostering/adopting.  You will learn more about the background of some of the children and the length of time it will take to get a placement.

At this point in the journey, you may have some very real concerns and conflicts about fostering.  Don't be afraid to ask any questions you may have.  Attending an orientation / information meeting does not mean you have to make any decisions right away, it only serves as a place to gather information about whether or not fostering is right for your family and guides you into the next step if you decide that it is for you.
