"Even Superman had Foster Parents…" ~Unknown

Of the 408,425 children in foster care during the 2010 US Census, 48% of them lived in non relative licensed family foster homes. Being a foster parent is an often thankless and almost always stressful full time job. While much has changed as far as the training and support available to foster parents from the agencies involved in both state run and community based care services, these amazing families can always use more. And that's exactly what we at a little elemental plan to give them!

iFoster was developed leveraging nearly 20 years of collective experience in the mental health and child welfare fields. But more important than that, it was created by a former foster parent, a family therapist, a former executive administrator of licensed out of home care, and a current adoptive parent of special needs children.

iFoster was built to be fun, efficient, and useful. Packed full of resources, tools, and supports, we think you will love what you see!


Check it out:

Contacts

You'll have full in app access to your iPad's address book to be able to store contact information on the children in your home as well as professional and natural supports. Don't worry, the app is password protected and secured so no worries about HIPAA compliance! (remember that you should also secure your iPad with a passcode to prevent compliance issues regarding images and emails pertaining to your foster children).


Appointments

Set appointments, notes and reminders from within the iFoster app! No jumping back and forth between apps…it's all built in!

Resources

☛ Web Resources via In App Web Browsing lets you quickly navigate to invaluable resources online without leaving iFoster.

Tools

☛ GPS Locator with Satellite Map Views let you work with clients to virtually tour their surroundings and plan skills building activities to breakthrough self defeating behavior.

☛ Stopwatch is a handy little gadget to use with your kids to do anything that you need to be time sensitive from races and challenges to setting limits and behavior modification.

☛ Soundboard gives you access to a full pallet of sound effects that will keep you and your children entertained and busy during times when they need to stay put or just when you all want to have some fun!

☛ Sound Recorder lets you make instant audio recordings and plays them back for you. This is a great tool to use with kids to not only have fun hearing themselves and making funny recordings, but also to work with them on tone and presentation.

☛ Camera gives you access to your iPad's built in camera to take candids or in case there's something you need to document.

☛ Photo Theaters are image slideshows which allow you and your kids to control the pace and scan through series of images including Dogs, Cats, Babies, Natural Landscapes, Planes, Trains, and Fantasy. Whether just to enjoy the amazing images or to engage your kids in deeply imaginative activities like creating their own stories and adventures, these tools will provide hours of entertainment.

And there's so much more. Spend a little time and scroll through the iFoster screenshots to get an idea of how much useful stuff the app is packed with and how much fun you and your family are going to have using it.
