McMan South - What to Expect

What to Expect

SAFE is a structured, evidence-based methodology used to get to know applicants and their families. The Home Study Report Practitioner will speak with applicants, others living in the home, and their personal networks about their life experiences. Extensive personal information is gathered through various sources and is used to complete the final home study report which aids those making the approval decision.

Home Study Report Services uses the Structured Analysis Family Evaluation (SAFE) tool to assess and recommend suitability of adults who apply to be foster parents, adoptive parents, kinship care providers, or private guardians.
