Transitioning from Foster Parents to Resource Parents
Whether you have been with us only a few months or several years, we greatly appreciate the service and life changing acts of kindness that have blessed the children that have come into your homes and your lives. You may be aware that as of January 1st, 2017 the foster care system was restructured to a more universal format called Resource Care. This system works to create a more stable life for children that need placement away from their biological families for whatever reason. As part of this process, all previous foster parents, families and homes need to transition to Resource Families. Part of this requires you to do some additional training hours not previously needed. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
In the process of transitioning from a "foster home' to a Resource Home, the only additional training that is needed are the training videos. There are a total of 6 of them and after each one we will ask that you write a brief summary of the training with a reflection of its importance.
