The Department of Children, Youth, and Families has contracted the Washington State Survey Office to gather feedback from foster parents and kinship caregivers. The survey, which has been in existence since 2012, asks caregivers a series of questions about the support and training they have received since becoming a foster parent or kinship caregiver.
A member of the survey team will contact caregivers who were randomly chosen to participate in the study. Your honest feedback will help us make improvements.
