Is that for therapeutic foster care? I've never heard of rates being that high - even in HCOL areas.
Anyhow, I'm glad you are getting so much helpful advice here. I have none to offer, as I am mostly a lurker on this forum since we hope to foster/adopt in the future. I am also looking into being a CASA volunteer as a way of helping children until we are ready to open our home.
Best of luck to you.
