Financial Support / Reimbursement for Michigan Foster Parents
Many people have the passion and the heart for becoming a foster parent but are concerned about the additional cost of housing and supporting a child. That is a completely normal concern. So, let us tell you a little bit about what you can expect.
Financial Assistance for Foster Children
Children in foster care do receive additional support when it comes to:
- Medical, dental and vision coverage through Medicaid
- Daycare subsidies
- Free school meals
- Tuition assistance for older youth
Eligibility for these services is not based on the foster parents’ income, but is based on the needs of the child. A Wellspring social worker will walk you through this to answer any of your questions or concerns.
