COVID-19: The YMCA’s Community of Fostering is still accepting applications for foster home licensing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The licensing process will include virtual interviews and a virtual home inspection. You will be able to move through the entire licensing process and obtain your foster care license during this time. Once it is safe for in-person contact to resume, your licensor will work with you to ensure you complete necessary items to maintain your license, including an in-person home inspection.

Before COVID-19, Washington State was already experiencing a shortage of foster homes and we anticipate the need will be even greater when we return to our new-normal as a community. Our program is committed to continuing to license new foster homes across our region to respond to the growing needs of children and families. Thank you for your interest in taking on this incredibly important role and we look forward to speaking with you soon!
