NC Launches Online Orientation for
Prospective Foster Parents


North Carolina has launched a new resource to support foster parent recruitment and training: an online orientation that sends a consistent, inspiring message to families considering providing therapeutic or family foster care. It is:

  • Easy to Find. Simply go to http://ncswlearn.org/foster.
  • Fast! Takes just 15 minutes. No registration--just click the link and begin.
  • Super Helpful. Explains foster care, describes the children in need of foster families, and tells you how to take the next step to becoming a licensed foster parent in North Carolina.

Know someone considering becoming a foster parent in our state? This orientation is a great way to start their foster care journey!
