Clients Roles & Responibilities

  1. 1. THE CLIENT’S ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITES Our agency will only enter into an Agreement with an individual(s) as a prospective foster parent (The Client) if both the individual’s responsibilities and the agency’s responsibilities have been discussed and are clearly understood by and between the parties. Upon acceptance into the Foster Care Program, prospective foster parents will be given an opportunity to discuss and to clarify the roles and responsibilities of agency staff and foster parents during pre-service training. We attempt to summarize these roles and responsibilities below. However, this list is not inclusive and additional roles and responsibilities are more clearly defined throughout policies. Specific policy references can be found at the end of this policy.
