The homestudy process

The homestudy process


Once you have completed your pre-service training, LCCS will assign a homestudy caseworker.

This caseworker will work through the homestudy process with you. The items you will be asked to provide or participate in include, but are not limited to:
  • Personal, professional and educational references.
  • Medical report on every member of the household.
  • Fire inspection.
  • Well water inspection (when applicable).
  • Verification of income.
  • Site and safety inspection, including furnace inspection and smoke detectors in each bedroom and on each floor.
  • Pet review and vaccination records.
  • Criminal checks for all members of the household age 18 and over. If you have not lived in the State of Ohio for at least five years, an FBI check will be required.
  • Review of any past history of abuse and/or neglect, substance abuse or mental illness.
