How Do I Become a Foster Parent?
Since both parents in the home must be trained, Oasis provides both the pre-placement training and the continuing training to become a traditional and/or specialized care giver. Training sessions are held monthly with activities for the foster children in your care provided.
Foster parents receive payment depending on the level of care the child requires.
Each child in care earns two alternative care/respite days a month. Another licensed Oasis foster family will provide alternative care/respite for your child.
Oasis provides a clothing allowance for spring & fall clothing as well as an allowance for a winter coat. An additional clothing allowance may be requested for initial clothing purchase or for special needs.
As a highly trained foster parent you are a professional who is certified and licensed to work in a cooperative planning program with your foster child. You will help decide the goals for a child to be successful in your home.
You will be treated professionally with personal support from Oasis professionals.
You will receive weekly contact from an Oasis case manager.
