Attention Foster Parents! Fall 2019

Free

with Stephanie Doore

Calendar Sep 18, 2019 at 6 pm

Are you a licensed foster parent with the Department of Health and Human Services? Have you been providing foster care for at least a year? Do you know that you may qualify to come on board with a Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) agency? TFC agencies provide additional resources and training to foster parents and also offer a number of additional supports to children for whom you are caring. This class session will offer additional information on the difference between family foster care and specialized (or therapeutic) foster care, the nuts and bolts about how you qualify, the simple steps involved in the process of coming on board with an agency, scenarios for when this transition would and would not necessarily make sense and will answer any questions you may have. If the class time does not work for you, call for an individual session. Stephanie Doore is passionate about her work with foster families, having worked with them for twenty-six years. Stephanie considers foster parents the everyday champions of children who need someone to hear their voice, to believe that the world needs their uniqueness and to stand beside them as they strive for their potential. Stephanie has earned both state and national awards for her work with foster families.
