MAKE BECOMING A FOSTER PARENT YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION

Lucas County Children Services offers first training sessions of 2019.

(TOLEDO, Ohio–December 16, 2019)— Lucas County Children Services has a great idea for anyone looking for a worthwhile New Year’s resolution: Become a foster or adoptive parent. The agency is offering its free information and training sessions, starting January 8, 2019. These classes are the first step toward becoming a licensed foster or adoptive parent.

The agency is looking for individuals or families willing to foster children of all ages, from babies to teens, as well as groups of brothers and sisters. You might be just the right caregiver for one or more of these youth, who need adults to care for them while their parents resolve the issues in their lives.

This first round of classes takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6 to 9 p.m., January 8 through February 14. A second round takes place on two consecutive Friday/Saturday/Sunday weekends, March 8, 9, and 10, and 15, 16 and 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All classes take place at the Lucas County Training Center, 711 Adams Street in downtown Toledo. For information, or to register for either session, please call 419-213-3336 or visit www.lucaskids.net.

Qualifying to be a foster or adoptive parent is easier than you think. You...

  • Must be at least 18 years of age to adopt; 21 to become a foster parent.
  • Participate in the free training. All caretaking adults in the household must attend.
  • Must demonstrate a source of income sufficient to care for yourself.
  • Can own or rent a home or apartment with at least two bedrooms. Your home must pass a safety inspection.
  • All adults in the home must provide references and pass a background check.
  • Can be married, single or in a relationship.
  • Can work outside the home.
  • Receive financial support, based on your foster child(ren)’s needs.
