You are encouraged to be informed. Watch the required orientation video here. Gather information about foster parenting, talk to other foster parents, then contact your local social services office to sign up for their next foster parent orientation session. There are a number of ways to get information about orientation schedules:
- Contact Carteret County Social Services directly at (252) 728-3181.
- Check out the events section of the Carteret County Social Services Facebook page.
- Complete this form and we will contact you.
- Keep a lookout on our Upcoming Training page.
Should you decide that you do not have sufficient room in your home or that you are unable to provide full time care for another child in your home, we encourage you to explore alternative ways to support foster care.
