Lighthouse understands that choosing to become a foster parent is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.We provide extensive training before and after you become a foster parent, including the 36 hours you need to become certified.
You will be interviewed, undergo a background check and home study, and be licensed as a foster parent by the state of Ohio. If you are part of a couple, both partners must be licensed and complete the entire process.
Lighthouse training sessions are more flexible than most programs. You can sign up for your sessions 2-3 days in advance and you are not required to take them in any specific order though it is recommended.
