• The family will collect and submit all necessary supporting documents for the home study

• Once all documents are received by Hopscotch, a contract social worker will be assigned

• A required minimum of two interviews with each applicant and/or children in the home and at least one home visit, with a contract social worker, will be scheduled at your convenience. 

• A draft of the home study is submitted to Hopscotch by the contract social worker

• The Director of Clinical Services will review the draft and send it to the family and placing agency (if other than Hopscotch) for review and feedback

• Any necessary edits for factual errors will be completed without charge

• The draft will be sent to the family and placing agency for final review

• The home study will be signed and notarized by Hopscotch
