House safety and compliance with state regulations for foster homes are discussed by Michael F. Quinn, M.A., social worker and foster family agency supervisor. Michael shares his 25 years of experience in the field of residential foster and group home care as he takes viewers on a virtual tour of a typical foster home. A sample room-by-room home inspection checklist, highlighting common foster home regulations, is among the handouts included for downloading by course participants.

  • list the reasons for conducting a self-guided home inspection
  • describe how to conduct a self-scout walk-through home inspection
  • identify common household hazards
  • list strategies for keeping interior and exterior locations safe for children
Course was helpful with very good information.

It was a very informative session. It's really just taking you back to basic house keeping. The inventory list and the suggestions on how often to use it will help to keep you in compliance at all times. Its so true that sometimes things are put off until later but check list help as reminder of things that need to be done.
