If you’ve been thinking of becoming a foster parent or adoption, you’ve already done the hard part. The next step is easy.

To learn more, request an Information Packet or call Beech Brook today at 216.545.4398 to register for a free information meeting. You’ll learn more about the children who are waiting for families and the steps you’ll need to take to become a foster parent.

Please note that if you have a partner, spouse, or co-parent who lives in your home, they will also have to attend an information session.

Since many foster parents also choose to adopt if their foster children become available for adoption, our training classes prepare families for both options.

Beech Brook’s training classes follow the state of Ohio’s rules for licensing foster parents, along with the specialized training needed to understand childhood trauma and provide a therapeutic and healing home environment.

Our foster parents receive extensive training and support, including:

  • Intensive initial training
  • Ongoing monthly training
  • Experienced foster parent mentors for guidance and support
  • Respite services, in and out of the home
  • Wraparound services
  • 24-hour emergency support
  • Case management
  • Competitive pay
  • Holiday parties and activities for families and children

Beech Brook also provides services for youth ages 18-21 who are aging out of foster care through Ohio’s Bridges program which provides the support they need to make a successful transition into adulthood.

We are hosting virtual Information Meetings on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. To register, please contact Don Smith at dsmith2@beechbrook.org. Please note: you must participate in an Information Meeting prior to beginning pre-service training.
