Learn About the Basics of Fostering
So, you’re interested in becoming a foster parent? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Wellpoint has a long history of providing foster care – we’ve been licensing and supporting safe, nurturing foster homes since 1984.
We need individuals and families from all backgrounds, cultures and family structures to represent the diverse range of children who need a foster home. You don’t have to be perfect or have the perfect home to begin fostering. More than anything, we’re looking for people with love and patience to share (and, a sense of humor always helps).
Before you start your journey, familiarize yourself with the Basics of Fostering with this introductory training module. We’ve designed it to help you better understand the range of foster opportunities available and describe what you can expect when you choose to work with us.
