As a foster parent of transition-age youth, you help teens become more independent in many ways. You advocate, teach, train, demonstrate, monitor and model skills that help teens become more self-sufficient.
Weekly documentation of your time spent with a teen to develop these skills is required. An easy checklist of qualifying activities is provided on our “Foster Care Forms“ page. You can also learn more about this tracking requirement on the “Transitional Living Skills Development -Information Sheet”.
Please note: Each youth is required to receive 3 hours of instruction per week. If you have questions about the requirement or documentation, please talk with your case manager.
