Our training class is an 10-week program covering a variety of topics pertinent to foster care. Once you begin classes, you will also be assigned a homefinding case worker to start the home study process with you. The home study is intended as a comprehensive review of potential foster parent applicants. It is used to determine whether or not an applicant is a suitable candidate for opening their home to children in care.
