If you have gotten your license to be a Resource Parent within the last couple of years, this class is for you!

The 4-week class will explore:

1) Building Your Support System (family & friends, professional contacts, when to reach out)

2) Creating Responsible Resource Families (rights & responsibilities, acronyms, record- keeping)

3) Welcoming a Child/Sibling Group into your Home (the “First Day”, communication, positive discipline, resiliency)

4) Transitions (children arriving & departing, grief & loss, birth parent interaction)

Participants will receive a certificate for 2 hours of training upon completion the class. Meets Foster VC Kids criteria for “teaming.”
