As a Wheeler foster parent, you can:
BECOME LICENSED AS A THERAPEUTIC FOSTER HOME
The program serves children, ages 6 through 17, who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect, or how may be experiencing symptoms related to trauma, loss and other behavioral health concerns. Foster families receive ongoing training and 24/7 support from our team.
PROVIDE RESPITE CARE
Respite Foster care offers a temporary home in which a foster parent or family takes over the parenting responsibility for another foster parent. Respite providers must meet licensing requirements, including training and other background checks.
