Why be a Foster Parent with Omni Vision?
Why be a foster parent with Omni Visions? The reasons are many, but they all come back to “family” – when you provide a family for a child in need of care, you become part of the Omni Visions family.
Omni Visions is committed to making you successful. That begins with the first contact and continues as long as you are part of the Omni Family. Omni Visions’ primary focus is to support the family in overcoming barriers that prohibit both the child's development and the ongoing operation of a positive family system.
A Resource Coordinator supports every foster family. The Resource Coordinator partners with the family to develop support services such as in-home counseling, mentoring, tutoring, and respite and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, when assistance, support, direction, and advocacy are needed. All these services are paid for by Omni Visions. Additionally, each Resource Coordinator has a very low caseload of 7-8 families, to ensure each family receives the attention and support needed.
