Event description

Description

A Community Representative is a trained certified volunteer who is present during the Department of Children Services (DCS) Child and Family Team Meetings (CFTM) in order to provide a community voice to critical decisions (i.e. whether or not to remove a child from his/her home, or where to place the child after a removal) that are made regarding the children and families in DCS custody.

A Community Representative, being both outside of the family whose child has been placed into custody and the potential foster family, serve as a voice from the community to assist in indentifying resources, share ideas for ensuring the children's safety, and well being while supporting the family.

The training will include policies, procedures, and protocol you will need to be a successful and effective Community Representative. This will be an interactive training with role playing. Lunch will be provided.

Is there a certain zip code required to be a Community Representative?

If you have a direct connection to zip codes 38107, 38108, 38112, 38127 or just a residence of Shelby County, you would be an ideal Community Representative.
