Policies on Engaging Foster Parents & Youth as Partners

Engaging Foster Parents & Youth as Partners    graphic

Wisconsin Foster Care and Adoption Resource Center

The resource center trains foster parents to recruit foster families within their communities. Each participating agency identifies a Foster Parent Champion for that purpose. Foster parents are reimbursed for time, travel and childcare and are given $100 gift cards for recruiting new licensed foster parents. The state also has a Foster Parent Advisory Committee that provides input on pending policies and legislation. Wisconsin partners with Quality Parenting Initiative.
