Having a child in foster care means more than just providing them with food and shelter.

Our training classes are intended to teach skills and offer information that will help you provide the healthy environment that the child needs.

Our Classes

Our classes focus on a variety of developmental stages, ranging from Infant Stimulation to Understanding Your Teens. We also discuss topics around trauma, positive parenting, and children’s rights. All of our classes are free of charge. Licensed resource parents will be given certificates of completion that can be used toward continuing education requirements.
