Foster Parenting on the adult side is called (Host Home Companion Care/HHCC), Acting as a Host Home Companion/HHC is when a client lives in the home of a person/family that assists with daily living skills, personal care, transportation and other activities that allow the client to live as independently as possible, in a safe and supportive environment. HCS fostering is unique in that the client is Intellectually Disabled (ID) and has received a (DID) Determination of Intellectual Disability and therefore may require specific care/special needs. These needs are individual to each client. You must be licensed by an agency to qualify to provide this care.

A Beyond Shelter does its best to match foster families with who can best meet the needs of the client. Because HCS is a Long Term Care program, you are not limited to only children, you can specify the age and gender that you feel best suits your living environment. Your home, Your choice.
Funding for foster care is covered by the Home and Community Based Services (HCS) Medicaid program. You receive a monthly stipend to help cover any expenses you might incur. The actual monetary amount depends on the clients level of care/need. The clients SSI covers the room and board for the HCS placement in your home. For any further questions regarding this matter, please contact us directly.
The time it takes to become a foster parent is typically (30 days). The actual placement process might take a little longer while we are searching for the perfect match between client and foster family.
No, not at all. Love and patience are what make a home, not how big or fancy it is. Our home inspection is for cleanliness, safety and livability. Regulatory compliance allows no more than THREE HCS clients per foster home with at least 80 sq ft (9X9 room) per HCS client with a door that closes for privacy.
