Foster Parent Survey
Between April 2012 and August 2012, the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) surveyed 1,371 foster parents who had a child in care on February 13, 2012 or May 15, 2012.
These foster parents were asked about their satisfaction with support and training provided by Children's Administration (CA) and the private agencies contracted by CA to provide services to foster parents. They were also asked to offer recommendations for change.
