Western New England University
This study focuses on the overnight program at a foster care agency and what information the
foster parents find important to know about the child and what resources might be beneficial to
be included in the program that could be available for the foster parents and the children. Data
from the five foster parents interviewed showed that trainings and support were important for the
foster parent to fully support and care for the child. The foster parents filed out a table expressing
what information they were provided with from the agency and what information they found
important. Most of the parents felt that all of the areas were important for the foster parent to
know about the child.
The purpose of this study is to provide the foster care agency with information from the foster
parents in the overnight program, that is set in place for emergency care placements, about what
they find helpful, what resources they feel would be beneficial, and if they are being given
adequate information about the foster children and how important they feel that information is to
know. This study is relevant to social work because the information given from the study provide
the agency with information that will help improve the overnight program which would than
benefit the foster parents in caring for the foster children, which creates better situations and
environments for the foster children. The study focuses on two main points; 1) what information
the foster parents in the overnight program consider to be important to know about the child, and
2) what resources and interventions might be beneficial for the foster parents in the overnight
