Foster Care Families Needed!

by Rhonda Pearson, Tioga County Department of Human Services - April 1, 2021

Foster Care Month begins in May, but our Tioga County Department of Human Services is always seeking foster families to fill this need in our area.

What is Foster Care? To provide a safe, nurturing environment, to promote the child’s maximum growth and development, to work toward achievement of the permanency goal of the child.

The mission of the Tioga County Department of Human Services is to protect, serve, and improve the quality for Tioga County’s citizens by effectively managing the County’s human service programs and resources.

To become a foster parent, you must meet the following criteria:
* Be at least 21 years of age.
* Be a U.S. Citizen.
* Obtain Criminal, Child Abuse, and FBI Clearances.
* Pass a physical examination; be free from communicable diseases and able to handle stress.
* Are successful in handling your own family life and finances.
* Possess patience and understanding for the needs of children of all ages.
* Acquire 6/12 hours of training.
