Lawmaker Wants To Set Up New Foster Care Program

KSAL StaffFebruary 11, 2015

A Kansas state senator wants to offer more money under a proposed foster care program to married couples who don’t have alcohol and tobacco in their homes and regularly attend church.

Republican Sen. Forrest Knox says he’s looking to provide more stability for children. His bill would set up the CARE family program, in which those eligible would be paid more than other foster care homes.

Qualification requirements include a husband and a wife being married for at least seven years. One of them also can’t work outside the home.

Under the planned program, families could receive state money to help homeschool their foster kids or send them to a private school.

A Senate panel is expected to discuss the bill Thursday.
