Every member of the household needs to be included in the home study process. Talk to your social worker early if you have other adults living in your home.
The original home study is valid for one year. If you haven’t had a placement by the one-year mark, you’ll need an update to your study.
If there are changes to the information covered in the home study while it is valid you may need to have an addendum completed. Examples of when an addendum is needed include things like moving to a new home, adding a family member to the household, and having a change in income/employment status.
