See this report about the findings of a survey of foster parents conducted by the Washington State Department of Social and Human Services. The survey aims to determine the level of satisfaction among foster parents in the support and training they receive from the agency. This report, published in June 2017, shows that a majority of foster parents continue to express satisfaction with the support and
training they receive, and with the social workers assigned to their cases. Compared to 2015, there was a statistically significant increase in positive responses about the overall quality of support, and there were non-significant increases on four other measures.
This report is the sixth annual Foster Parent Survey report completed by RDA. Previous reports can be found here. https://www.dshs.wa.gov/sesa/rda/research-reports/2015-foster-parent-survey-dshs-foster-parents-speak
