Now that you’ve applied to be a foster parent or adoptive parent at Children’s Home of Lubbock, here’s what you can expect next on your journey:
So we become a foster family. Then what?
Before a child is ever placed in your home, we’ll provide specific training about foster care. As a foster parent you will receive on-going training to equip you to help the children in your home.
▸ Case Management
A case manager from Children’s Home of Lubbock will visit your home on a regular basis to provide support and direction.
▸ 24-hour On Call
Staff of Children’s Home of Lubbock will be available 24 hours a day to help foster parents deal with difficult situations.
▸ Medical Care
The medical needs of all foster children in care are covered by Texas Medicaid.
▸ Foster to Adopt
When adoption is in the child’s best interest, that child’s foster parents will be given the opportunity to adopt. Dual licensing (Foster care and Adoption) is available through our agency.
Foster parents gain a sense of satisfaction in knowing that you are giving a needy child a good stable home. Without you this ministry would not exist. Foster Parent Appreciation events are scheduled each year to honor your commitment, service, and dedication to helping children.
