Kansas Won’t Bar Singles as Foster Parents

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2015

A spokeswoman for the Kansas Department for Children and Families says it will not prevent single adults from serving as foster parents for abused and neglected children.

Agency spokeswoman Theresa Freed said Friday that the department has never considered excluding single adults from being foster parents just because they are single.

Freed first discussed the agency’s position in an Associated Press interview. The department did not issue a public statement.

Freed says the department isn’t making any statement about its position on legally married same-sex couples serving together as foster parents.

Before the U.S. Supreme Court last month legalized same-sex marriage, Kansas allowed gays and lesbians to serve as foster parents as single adults.

Questions have arisen about the department’s plans because it is reviewing foster care policies.
