Foster Parenting Classes begin in March

Post Date:01/20/2017 12:43 p.m.

At any given time, there are 20-50 children in need of foster homes in Dare County. These children come into foster care under no fault of their own. Dare County Department invites you to make a difference in the life of a child by becoming a foster parent.

Foster care is intended to be temporary and placements can last anywhere from a night or two to a year or more.  On some rare occasions, children may be unable to return home and another permanent plan such as adoption is possible. Children in foster care can range from birth to 18 years old, and foster parents are able to specify a desired age range for placements in their home.

In order to become a foster parent, you must complete Foster Parent Training which is provided by the Department of Health and Human Services. The next training is being held in Manteo starting in March, 2017.
