Become A CK Family
We are excited that you have decided or are considering becoming a foster parent through CK Family Services.

Below is a list of the six steps you will take on your journey to become a CK Foster Family.

Step 3: Complete & Submit an Application
Please contact our Family Development Team to request and complete our application forms. You can reach us at email@example.com.
Step 4: Pre-Service Training & Documentation Packet
An experienced Family Development Specialist and their Family Development Assistant will support your family as you work through this step. They will assist you in registering to participate in a series of classes that we created to prepare you to be a CK Family. They are also available to help you as you work to complete and submit the CK Documentation Packet.
Step 5: Homestudy
Once you’ve completed most of the training and paperwork, one of our assessment professionals will schedule a day to come to your home to meet face to face with your family and complete your Homestudy interviews. We will interview all household members ages 3 and older individually, all family members (including children) as a family unit, and finally married couples will be interviewed together as a couple. We’ll compile all of your information into an extensive report that will be a great reflection on your family’s interests, personalities, skills, abilities and goals. This document will be your homestudy and will be used for a variety of purposes including making matches between your family and children in need of a home.
Step 6: Verification and Licensure
When all of the steps have been successfully completed, we will verify your family as a CK Family. A CK Family Services Case Manager will be assigned to support your family. They will walk alongside your family so long as you remain a CK Family and will function as your primary contact with CK Family Services. At this time we will begin the process of seeking to match children who are in need of a home with family environment that you are able to provide.
