Already an Adult Foster Home (AFH) Provider

Current licensed AFH providers may benefit from these helpful resources:

  • Adult Protective Services 
  • Aging and Persons with Disabilities (APD) Provider Tools
    The general information below is meant to help you succeed as a licensed adult foster home provider. Visit the Oregon Department of Human Services APD Adult Foster Home Provider Information page.
  • Vacancy Reporting
    Call 503-304-3454 or FAX 503-304-3465 every week to update your listing. Give us your name (not AFH name), number of vacancies, whether room is single or shared, and whether vacancy is for a female, male, or either.
  • Even if you have the same vacancies as the week before, contact us every week.
  • Resident Manager Changes
    What do I need to do to hire a new resident manager? Once you are sure you want the person for the job, contact adult foster home licensing staff by phone: 503.304.3400 or by email: AFH.Licensing@nwsds.org for information on requirements and application forms.
  • Renewing Your License
    Did you get a notice that your license is about to expire? We will send you a renewal application packet with the necessary instructions and forms several weeks before your license expires. You are required to ensure your application materials are completed and turned in before your license expiration date.
  • Relicensing Inspection
    To help your relicensing inspection go smoothly we suggest:
    • OPEN your renewal application packet promptly
    • MAIL all your forms and payment in well before the due date.
    • PREPARE your home for inspection.
    • REVIEW your AFH facility and resident records.
    • PREPARE your caregivers for the inspection.
    • CALL a licensor if you have any questions.
    • RELAX! Your relicensing will go smoothly!
