Agencies Near Me
1) Choose Regular or Therapeutic
If you have experience working with children with special needs or have a medical background, and have time to manage extra appointments, you may consider therapeutic fostering. Children in therapeutic foster care require a higher level of care.
2) Choose a Licensing Agency
The agency you choose will be your support system as a foster family. You will be assigned a worker at that agency, who will help you through the application process and will be assigned to your family as long as you are fostering.
3) Research Your Options
On the map, go to each agency's website.
Check out SC Foster Families to see who they foster with.
Please note that the requirements to become a foster parent are mandated by the state and are the same across all agencies, and agencies may choose to implement additional requirements, such as a statement of faith.
