How to Become an Alternate Caregiver



Alternate caregivers are persons/families who provide respite to foster parents to enable them to have an evening out, for emergency situations, or for vacation time. As alternate caregivers, you will be certified to care for a foster child for up to two weeks when/if needed. Alternate caregivers are crucial to the sustainability of a foster family, and must have an existing relationship with a foster family before serving. They provide foster families much needed time for their children and family, and rest to meet the ongoing demands of the foster system and the emotional toil it can take. Alternate Caregivers are blessed by the difference they make in the lives of foster families and their foster children.
