Camelot Foster Care Serivces

Camelot looks at the needs of each particular child in Tennessee referred to us by DCS and matches them with a licensed home based on the strengths, experiences, and preferences of the foster families.

Eligibility Requirements

The children referred to Camelot are in the state of Tennessee's custody for an assortment of reasons and stay in our continuum for different amounts of time. Sometimes they have had several previous failed foster home placements or are ready to be discharged from residential group home care back into a family setting. Some of the children have goals of returning home to their parents if conditions are corrected. Others are teens who have goals of independence, which means they need a stable home until they are ready to move into adulthood. Some children have goals of adoption and need homes which are willing to provide permanency for them in this way. These services are provided to children who are currently in the custody of the Department of Children's Services. http://www.thecamelotdifference.com/Services/FosterCare.aspx If you have ever wondered how to become a foster parent in Tennessee, there has never been a better time. Children that are in the custody of the State of Tennessee need a safe, stable, loving environment where they can learn, grow and be successful. You could provide these needs for a child in your home. Those interested in becoming a foster parent in Tennessee must complete the home study process, which includes PATH (Parents as Tender Healers) training, background checks and home visits. Free on-going training is offered to our foster parents to help families refine and expand their skills. Reimbursement to offset the costs of raising a child is also provided. Our qualified, professional staff offer in-home case management services and 24/7 crisis support to all our foster parents. Please consider helping change a child's life by being part of The Camelot Difference. http://www.thecamelotdifference.com/JoinOurTeam/BecomeAFosterParent.aspx
