Licensing

Licensing Representative: Pamela Cooper

Child Link’s licensed foster parents support the agency in a tremendous way. Many of the foster parents provide a temporary home for our adoptive children who are on their way to being returned to their birth parents. Other adopting parents are looking for something more permanent and choose to foster-to-adopt through Child Link.

Child Link’s Licensing Department works in conjunction with potential foster families and licensed foster parents. Our Licensing staff works to ensure our children are placed in the safest and most appropriate foster homes for adoption, guardianships, and foster care.

Our Licensing Specialists are responsible for assisting and explaining the licensing process, conducting home visits, and compiling a licensing assessment and background check. Once an aspiring adopting parent becomes licensed, he or she becomes eligible for the immediate placement of a child in his or her home.
