The Problem It Solves
Current CPR certification, training, pet vaccinations, and other requirements are generally required in order to renew a foster home license, but those renewal dates rarely line up with the actual foster home license renewal date. Sending reminders to families to address these items ensures that they are all caught up when it’s time to renew their license.
How To Do This
Add critical dates to your calendar:
