New Provider Orientation

Intended Audience: Orientation is for those who are interested in opening a group home providing 24 hour residential care to children or starting a foster care agency–this orientation is not for day care providers.

Description: This orientation will cover the current status of child welfare, opportunities for serving children and alternatives to group care. Currently the State has minimal need for new group homes. A program may become licensed but unless there is need for new programs, the state will not contract with you for the placement of children – Georgia is encouraging the development of home and community based services.
