Online Foster Care Info Meeting
Participants will learn: why kids and teens come into foster care, what services are available to kids and families, who can become a foster parent, what is required for licensing and how it is currently being done virtually, the differences between licensing through a nonprofit and the state, and how to get involved.
Who we are: Youthnet is a non-profit no-fee agency established in 1969. We license, make placements, and provide services to children, youth, and families.
Service area: We license foster families in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, Island, and San Juan Counties for children of all ages. Youthnet recently expanded to also license foster families in King, Pierce, Kitsap , Clallam, and Jefferson Counties with a focus on school age children and teenagers.
Certificates: If you are interested in becoming licensed, all participants will receive a certificate and this meeting qualifies as your orientation requirement.
If you are ready to start the licensing process or have a question, please reach out to Holland Wood at:
