Helping children in foster care maintain connection with their parents while providing support to foster parents and caseworkers.
Duties: Facilitate visits between children in foster care and their parents. These visits require supervision, and Family Time Supervisors help make this possible by allowing caseworkers and foster parents to focus on other responsibilities. Supervisors work together with the child’s parents, foster parents, and caseworker to coordinate an appropriate public location and time for the visit. The Family Time Supervisor then meets with the child and their parent at the approved location.
Time: Typically 1-2 hours per week for the duration of the case, often 6-12 months.
In order to volunteer, you must be age 18+, complete the Family Time Supervisor training, and pass a criminal background screening.
