Foster Care

Are you interested in becoming a foster parent?

The next step is to attend one of our orientation classes.  Here you will learn more about Lifeline’s foster care program and the various opportunities to get involved, including any requirements for each opportunity. 

If you are interested in becoming a licensed foster parent or respite provider, attendance at an orientation meeting is required prior to participating in the 7-10 week (differs by state) foster parent training course.

*Orientation is a requirement to be a part of the classes

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent in the Birmingham area, we are in the process of scheduling the next round of classes. Please continue to check back on this page for more updates!
