Foster Care Qualifications



Do you measure up?

The State of Michigan outlines rules for licensing foster parents. There are many qualifications you and the members of your household must meet before licensing can occur, and this information will be reviewed more thoroughly with you in the orientation meeting.

Some of the basics you'll need to demonstrate:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You'll need to be able to spend adequate time on foster parenting
  • That you have a defined income
  • That you are willing to work with the child's family or future family
