    Sec. 6. Home caregivers. Prospective home caregivers shall be selected from among recipients of public assistance according to their capacity to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing home environment and to assure reliable quality care. No individual shall be required to participate nor may any individual's public assistance benefits be denied due to declining to participate in this program. Each home caregiver who serves a child shall be licensed as a foster home by the Department of Children and Family Services or a designated Child Welfare Agency prior to placement of any individual in the home. Each Project HELP home shall serve one individual; the Department may waive this provision in exceptional circumstances, but in no case may more than two individuals be served in the same Project HELP home.
