Babysitting & Respite2019-01-25T14:06:05+00:00


Did you know foster parents can’t hire a regular babysitter? If they want relief, they are required to get an agency-trained and approved caregiver. One Heart seeks to carve an easy path for friends, family, and fans of foster families to provide relief to our foster parents.

While you can receive training at any one of our local foster agencies, One Heart offers a quarterly training quarterly in coordination with our local foster agencies (LIAC). Whether you know a foster family or just want to be added to an agency’s list of approved babysitters, this is an easy opportunity with great impact. Trainings take place on Saturdays 9:00-3:00pm (training in AM, CPR in PM). While training is free, other costs include:

  • CPR/First Aid certification ($25-40)
  • FBI Fingerprinting ($41.50)
  • TB testing ($10 per household resident)

We are happy to help.
