Become A Foster Parent With Anna's House

Foster Families of Faith

Anna's House Foundation recruits and supports foster families of faith. Fostering is a temporary placement of children while their parents work towards reunification. It is important that foster families realize the goal of foster care is to reunify. There are times that children are unable to be reunited with their biological family; at that time children may be considered for adoption. A foster family should never go into foster parenting as a means to adopt, but realize that it may be an option at some point.

Foster families will be expected to help maintain their child’s connection to their kin, culture and community while providing temporary care, love and nurturance to the child or children in their home. A foster family is expected to work as a member of a professional team to serve the best interests of the child and their family by supporting relationships and efforts to reunite. Children are from various origins, ethnicities, backgrounds, and ages, and some have experienced neglect or abandonment. These traumas require a family to embrace them with love, patience and kindness.

Making a Difference

We recruit foster families who are called to make "life changing differences" in the lives of foster children for the period they are in their home and family. Each child's family situation is unique and requires a commitment to work with the child as long as they need them. The length of time to become a foster family will vary, depending on the procedures involved in each situation, but usually takes 2 months from the time you apply to the time you're certified. The process includes:

Anna's House Foundation Orientation

Submitting an application and required documents

Providing references

Completing Guiding Principles, the 27 hour Oklahoma training to become a foster parent

Undergoing required background checks and fingerprinting

Participating in a home study which includes 2 home visits and family member interviews
