Frequently Asked Questions
If the child is moving out of the county, we’ll discuss with that foster family the best possible transition of items for that child. Any larger items such as gear or furniture should be returned to Fostering Hope. However, a child who has already experienced trauma (which can simply mean changing homes or caretakers) should not have personal items that they are attached to removed from them because of a location move.
Foster parents take a series of training classes and have a home study completed.
More information and next steps, search your local child welfare office for your county.
If you’d like more information regarding private agency options, a great resource to ask questions is through the PA Adoption and Foster Care Community on Facebook. You can find them here.
