Steps you should take when trying to find an agency.

Witten by: Serenity Henderson March 31, 2021

  • See what services the agency offers.
  • Find out if they offer 24hr support.
  • Check their reviews and social media. Do they have an honest reputation?
  • Ask if they provide basic needs for the child or if they do reimbursements.
  • You’ll need to know if there will be any trainings you’d have to take if so how many.
  • Look at their competitors and see what they have to offer.
  • Find out how much they’ll be willing to pay you and when those pay periods occur.
  • See how many parents they currently have compared to parents who have left the agency for whatever reason.

It may take some time finding the perfect agency. You’d want to narrow it down to the ones that best fits your needs and lifestyle. Fostering can be a long, hard, yet very rewarding journey. Make sure you dont rush the process. Having a supporting agency by your side will make it easier for you to take on such a responsibility.
