Foster Care

Resource Family Training

Resource Parents are required to complete pre-service training. Pre-service training is designed so that a Resource Family can learn to meet the needs of children in foster care.

Resource Family Training's consist of 6 modules. Modules 1 through 4 are mandated for resource families to complete before they can be approved to care for foster children. However, it is highly recommended that modules 5 and 6 be taken as soon as possible as they cover important information that is useful for resource families. Resource families may start with any module, although it is more cohesive when modules are taken in the order.
