Foster care license meeting April 1

An informational meeting regarding adult foster care in Washington County is 6 to 8 p.m. April 1, in the Lower Level Room 12 in the Government Center in Stillwater.

The county requires interested people to attend an informational meeting which provides an overview of the foster care program. For those who decide to become licensed to provide foster care for adults, the licensing process begins at no cost to them.

In addition to meeting state licensing requirements, foster families should be able to provide a stable family atmosphere (can be a one- or two-parent home); positive attitude; adequate housing, whether a house or apartment, love and support for the children or adults in their care.

Before families can be licensed, they must undergo a thorough screening process which includes an extensive background check.

For additional information, questions, or to RSVP to the meeting in case of cancellation, call 651-430-6455.
