Foster Care training consists of 7 classes meeting Thursday evenings from 5:30-9:30 PM from Aug 8th - Sept 19th.
From 5:30-6:20 a scripture and prayer-based small group will take place based on a devotional study for foster parents. These devotions are 30 days in length and typically cover the call to foster care/adoption, birth family connections, dealing with difficult behaviors, etc...
The remaining time will be the IMPACT Family Centered Practice Training which is required to become a foster, respite or HOST home.
This training will touch on a variety of important topics which include welcoming a new foster child, managing discipline, partnering with the birth family, and nurturing your own biological family.
When & Where
Live The Promise
Live The Promise, led by Promise686, depends on a coalition of churches working together. Promise686 mobilizes and serves churches and families to meet the needs of orphans and foster children. Specifically, Promise686 is a ministry that assists families and churches who have a heart for caring for orphans and foster children, by providing financial assistance, community support, and education. Promise686 believes the best way to care for these children is through the family. In short, if “God sets the lonely into families” (Psalm 68:6), then so will we. We accomplish this in the foster care realm through our ongoing campaign –
Live The Promise.
