If you are a relative who wants custody of a child, you can apply to get PRIDE training to be a foster parent. DHHR will do a general walkthrough of your home. If DHHR decides your home is safe and appropriate, DHHR can then place the child in the home. Next, the Homefinding Unit will do a background and criminal records check on you. If you pass these checks, DHHR will certify you as a foster parent and you can get financial help in caring for the child.
