Step 1: Information Meeting

Information Meetings in Greater Houston:

Participating in an Information Meeting is the first required step in the process towards becoming an Arms Wide foster or adoptive parent. If you are interested in learning more about the process, please register for a virtual Information Meeting by visiting the Event Calendar and choosing the date that works best for your schedule. If none of the virtual dates work for your schedule, please contact Trainer and Recruiter Carrie Shephard at cshephard@armswide.org to schedule a one-on-one Information Meeting. We appreciate your flexibility in allowing 48 business hours for a response. Although we typically hold Information Meetings in person at our office, we are monitoring the situation related to COVID-19 and offering virtual or one-on-one meetings to ensure the safety of our families and children.

During the Information Meeting, an Arms Wide Coordinator will walk you through the process of fostering or adopting a child or children in foster care. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about fostering or adopting a child or children in need, in addition to meeting other families who are interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
