What is a safe home study?
The safe home study is a series of structured interviews and a home inspection that determines if an individual or family is appropriate to become a licensed foster home. A safe study evaluates a family’s ability to care for children and to provide a safe and nurturing home. Normally, this process is conducted over a series of at least four visits to the prospective foster family home.
