At the beginning of each month, parents and their child care provider will receive a "Notice" in the mail explaining how much ICCP expects to cover. Providers will get a notice for every ICCP family whose children they care for. The information on these notices is important because it will tell parents and providers what the Department anticipates paying child care for the month and what the parent must pay. Both parents and providers must tell the case case worker who sent the notice if the information on the notices is not correct.
Keeping children safe is one of the primary goals at the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. Services are designed to help protect children, while providing supports to strengthen families to prevent abuse and neglect. If a child is being abused or neglected the Department works as part of a team with law enforcement and the courts to protect the health and safety of each child. Whenever possible, children should remain with their family.
Every child deserves a safe and loving home. Foster care and adoption provide that to Idaho’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens. However, children are not the only ones to benefit from these programs. Serving as a foster parent or adopting a child can be an extremely rewarding experience, the kind of experience that enriches the lives of everyone involved.
