What is a Foster Care Navigator?
A Foster Care Navigator (FCN) is someone who serves as a liaison between current and prospective foster parents and their agency. Each FCN will mentor, through their own experience, parents navigating through the world of foster care.
Modeled after the Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) Adoption Navigator program, Foster Care Navigators are trained and experienced current and former foster parents who have navigated through their own foster care experiences.
Why choose a Foster Care Navigator?
Whether you have been a foster parent for several years or you are just inquiring about becoming a foster parent, the benefits of having a Navigator are invaluable. Our staff of navigators work with both the State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and private agencies to support the continuing growth of Michigan’s foster parent population. We work to empower, educate and advocate for all individuals who wish to continue as or become foster parents.
