Every foster parent is required to undergo a certain number of hours of training as part of the home study — the legal process that certified you to host foster care children in your home. This webinar will cover the type of training required — and the resources and support foster parents receive once they enter the system.
No one becomes a successful foster care parent without help along the way — typically, you'll interact with several child welfare experts, whose jobs it is to help prepare and guide you through the process, and be your cheerleader when you need support. (And you will!) This webinar will walk you through just one example of how gay foster dads and the staff at their agency work together throughout the foster care certification process — and beyond.
