Become an Primary Medical Needs Foster Parent

Good Hearts is currently recruiting prospective foster parents who are interested in providing a safe and supportive environment for children with primary medical needs.

In addition to Good Hearts’ minimum requirements for prospective foster parents, those who wish to provide care to children with primary medical needs must also:

  • demonstrate prior training/experience unique to the primary medical needs population (e.g. nursing/pediatric experience, working with special needs children in a school setting/treatment center, etc.);
  • receive additional training in areas appropriate to the needs and characteristics of children with primary medical needs; and
  • have at least a minimum of one year experience fostering children with treatment service needs.

If you are interested in becoming a primary medical needs foster parent either in Houston or in Austin, please call us at  281-298-4028 – one of our Foster Home Developers will be happy to speak with you about the process!
