Parents, beware of Cultural Care.
Parents, don't put your children in harms way.
Although they claim they comply with the basic procedures stated by the US Department of Labor, Cultural Care will not go far when it comes to standards in their screening process. Candidates abroad can and will lie in their applications just to get a foot in the States. Candidates, especially from underdeveloped countries where there is a poor or inexistent record keeping system, are free to lie and won’t get caught when applying. In many cases, mothers, relatives and friends suffice as references and as proof of childcare, at least to Cultural Care. How trustworthy. It’s up to you to reject these applications because Cultural Care certainly won’t.
Once in the States, problematic and dangerous candidates will get recycled and go from host family to host family so Cultural Care doesn’t take a loss. Your loss? Your child’s loss? Who cares? Cultural Care doesn’t.
If recycling a candidate through their system they will hide information from you regarding previous families and their contact information, whether you request this or not at the time of selecting the candidate.
Watch out for these money predators that paint the prettiest picture and will use your children as a gateway to your pockets. Watch out for money predators that don’t care if your children are endangered or get hurt.
