Are there costs involved with foster parenting?

Foster parents may incur some costs during the licensing process. For example, foster parents are required to be certified in CPR/First Aid for infants, children and adults. The cost of taking this class in the community may be $30-$40.

Additionally, foster parents are required to provide the results of a medical evaluation before becoming licensed. This may or may not be covered by medical insurance.

Other potential costs might involve improvements that might be necessary to your home to meet licensing standards, such as adding pool or spa covers or fencing or child protective gates.
