Getting Started

The first step in becoming a foster parent is to attend a VisionQuest orientation. After hearing about the ins and outs of fostering a child, you will need to complete the state mandated foster parenting training.

VisionQuest provides information sessions and the required PS-MAPP and Deciding Together training.


All you need is a big heart, a desire to make a difference, and:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Be single, married, partnered, or cohabiting
  • Be a legal resident of the United States
  • Be willing to participate in a home study
  • Be knowledgeable, stable, mature, and have nurturing skills
  • Be willing to complete foster parent training
  • Demonstrate financial security and space in your home
  • Pass a criminal background check
  • Provide references
  • Own or rent an apartment, house, manufactured, or mobile home
