5 Documents to Post in Your Foster Care Home
As a foster parent, you need to have a lot of documentation posted for everyone to see (yourself, your foster child, any professionals coming to your home), or available for quick access.
Here are five documents not to forget to post or have on hand (depending on what your county requires)!
📰 The placement paperwork that indicates the child is in your care
📰 Your license! Make sure the most current one is posted and it is not expired.
📰 A facility sketch of your home
📰 An evacuation plan in case of emergency. And don't forget to do emergency drills with your foster children!
📰 A contact list for the child's professional team, as well as safety contacts (hospital, fire department, poison control, etc.) is critical to have posted for easy reference.
Of course, every agency and county requires something different, so check with your local licensing agency!
