Intake RequirementsProof of income, Proof of age, Proof of residency
Helpful TipsAn individual need to obtain an application from any CEO FRC or website, complete and return with proof of income, residency and applying Childs proof of age. Once income is verified, eligibility is determined and the application is rated based on selection criteria. Depending upon the score the child is either placed immediately or placed on a waiting list according to the score. The program must prioritize and serve the neediest first. Homeless and foster care children are always top priority.
