If I am already a licensed foster parent through the state or another private agency, do I have to go through the licensing process again with Amara?

At Amara, we believe that our home study process is an essential part of preparing families to be ready to care for children who have experienced trauma. Therefore, we require every family we work with to complete our home study process, even if they are already licensed through the State of Washington or other child placement agency. If you are already a licensed foster home through the State or another local agency, you may continue to have children placed in your home while you are working on your home study with Amara. We will work with your previous licensor to utilize any documentation to simplify your process and reduce as much repetitive paperwork as possible.
