Who Can Become a Foster Family?

One of the biggest myths about foster families is that only certain types of families qualify. The truth is, foster families are as unique as birth families.

  • Aspiranet works with families regardless of ethnic background, education level, sexual orientation, relationship status (single, married, partnered), job status (part or fulltime) or homeownership

  • Parent(s) must be 21 years or older

  • Should have adequate space for a child in their home

  • All adults over 18 must clear a background check

  • Parent(s) must have a valid California driver’s license, DMV record, reliable transportation and proof of insurance

  • Parent(s) will need to successfully complete Aspiranet foster parent classes, CPR and first aid classes, family interviews and assessments and a home inspection
