Does anyone have a sample foster program satisfaction survey they have used with foster parents? Or even suggestions for some good questions? I recently have taken over managing the foster coordinators and foster program in my shelter and am looking for some insight and suggestions for program improvement moving forward.
Hi - You can find a sample survey in our brand new How to Build a Foster Program course for Maddie's University, authored for Maddie's Fund by J. Scarlett Kingsley of UC Davis. Below is a link to the free course. The downloadable survey with sample questions is in the Resource tab in Lesson 10 - Retaining Foster Families. It's a Word doc so you can customize it according to your needs. The entire course has 10 short, interactive modules and is primarily for those who are just starting to build a foster program - but it offers a LOT of downloadable resources throughout, and some great information on recruiting, training and retaining foster volunteers. Have a look! And thank you for all you are doing to save the animals!Here is a link to the course - it's free to register! https://www.maddiesuniversity.org/Catalog/LrnrTab2318/catalog/LrnrCtrl2318/catalog/LrnrKC2318/true/FID2318/8bd06da7-a2ed-4e77-81b8-cf1b446d8979
Thanks so much!
If you find any other resources for survey questions I would love to know! Trying to compile a list of questions. I am going through the Foster program course, what a great resource! Already added the lesson 10 survey questions to my list but as stated, would love more!
As a foster caregiver myself, I think a question about communication would be good. I have found the communication with the orgs I foster with to be hit or miss. Sometimes very responsive and other times, crickets.
