Our foster families have all completed pre-service training geared towards the special needs of children in care who experience developmental disabilities. Our foster families meet the state mandated requirements for background checks (state and national FBI criminal records, adult abuse, child abuse, and driving records) in addition to a long list of other requirements that must be satisfied prior to having a child placed in the home. All of our homes are required to maintain strict compliance with applicable licensing standards and are monitored for compliance quarterly. Children in care receive monthly visits by their Integrity, Inc. caseworker in the foster home. Weekly visits are done the first 12 weeks a new child is placed in the program. Our homes are specialized to meet the specific needs of children with disabilities and/or medical conditions that require more than typical care.
