Did you know you get a daily rate for fostering a child? It’s not a lot but it can help families who think fostering isn’t right for them as they will have a lot of of out of pocket costs. You WILL have some out of pocket costs… you will be financially responsible for a child and we all know children are expensive! This is a guide from Arizona Department of Economic Security with reimbursement rates and what they are to be used for.
Remember you’re being reimbursed, not being paid. There is absolutely no profit in foster care if you’re doing it correctly. And if you are making a profit you’re either a scumbag who isn’t utilizing funds correctly or you’re a savvy spender and you should reach out to me ASAP and show me your ways.
