If your family is participating in an orphan hosting program, we are happy to provide your home safety check!

The agency you’re hosting through will require a “mini home study” to be completed by an accredited provider in your home state. We can complete home safety checks in Virginia.

What is included in a home safety check?

  • One visit to the home by a qualified home study worker, who will prepare the safety check report
  • Interviews with each family member
  • Description of the home and neighborhood
  • Personal biographies and family income statement
  • Records checks, if not being completed by hosting agency

If your family returns for a full home study within one year of completing your safety check, the pre-application fee will be waived.

To get started, contact our Home Study department with any further questions and to submit your Safety Check Application.
