Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster and/or adoptive parent! Registration for this TIPS-MAPP class is now closed, so please register for another class if one is available (and if it fits your schedule) or add your name to the waitlist for this class. Someone may withdraw from this class before it starts (this happens regularly) which will free up a seat for you. To joint the waitlist, use the green "Register" button on this page. If you see a "Details" button instead of a "Register" button, this means that the registration period has ended and you won't be able to join the waitlist. We add new TIPS-MAPP training series on a rolling basis. Your recruiter will contact you when a new class becomes available. Thank you for your patience. If you are already registered for this class, congratulations! We look forward to seeing you in class.

Event description

Description

SEPTEMBER 1 UPDATE: Please note that the training has been moved to Children's Friend and Service, 153 Summer Street in Providence.

Come join us in your next step to becoming a foster or adoptive parent while meeting other families on the same journey! TIPS-MAPP is designed to prepare individuals and couples to make an informed decision about becoming foster, adoptive, or foster/adoptive families (also known as resource families). You will also develop abilities that are essential for resource parents working to promote children's safety, permanence, and wellbeing.

WHEN: There are 10 weekly sessions in this training series. Class meetings will be held on ten Tuesday nights from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., starting on September 5 and ending on November 21, 2017. Please note that there will be no class on October 10 and October 31.

WHERE: You will meet in the boardroom at Children's Friend and Service, 153 Summer Street in Providence. Free parking is available in the lot in front of the building. Street parking is also free in this area.

Please note that we offer TIPS-MAPP classes in Spanish several times each year. If you speak Spanish and are not entirely comfortable speaking and reading English, please wait for a Spanish-language TIPS-MAPP class. If you speak a language other than Spanish and need an interpreter, or if you need another accommodation to participate in the training, please contact Cathy Sears at Cathleen.Sears@dcyf.ri.gov or 401.528.3789 as soon as possible.

Seating is limited, so register as soon as you decide to enroll. When registering for this training, please be sure to request the number of tickets corresponding to the number of adults in your family who need to be trained and provide an individual email address for each attendee. (Please do not use the same email address for more than one person.) Your trainers, Jennifer Uriarti and Lori Hynes, look forward to seeing you on September 5!
