Foster Care Information Session




Becoming A Foster Parent

Thank you for your interest in foster care. Persons interested in becoming foster parents are invited to attend a three-hour information session which will provide an overview of foster care, will address their interest, and provide information. For those interested in further pursuing foster parenting, nine additional training sessions will be required.

Information sessions are held once per month in New Castle County and every other month in Kent and Sussex Counties. Sessions are normally held on a Wednesday from 6pm – 9pm (dates and locations may vary).
