How to Become a Foster Parent

Want to become a foster parent in Nebraska? By being a foster parent, you can have a tremendous impact on the life of a child or teenager. There are hundreds of Nebraska children and teens in need of a safe and nurturing environment to call home until they are able to safely return to their families.

Joining a KVC Nebraska foster parent pre-service training is another way to get more information and determine if this is a good fit for your family. While going through training, you will need to complete background checks to include local law enforcement, national law enforcement (fingerprinting), Child and Adult Protective Services, and the Department of Motor Vehicles.

In addition to background checks, there are licensure documents which help ensure compliance with all policies and requirements related to foster homes and an individual self-study. Once all of this is completed, a home study will be conducted in your home. For more information on the process to become a foster parent, take a look at our guide “6 Steps to Becoming a Foster Parent.”
