  • Council of Foster and Adoptive Parents

    November 13, 2019 6:00 PM

    Where:

    274 N. Goodman St., Suite D103, Rochester, NY

    A support group for adoptive and foster parents, the Council of Adoptive Parents meets the second Wednesday of every month for 1-1/2 hours to exchange ideas and encouragement. Sometimes there are speakers or presentations, but there is always camaraderie and sharing of stories. Parents can say to one another, “You’re not alone – we’ve had the same problems as you, and we worked through them.” Nothing takes the place of a community of families to ensure a happy, successful adoptive or fostering experience. Please join us any month – no commitment required.

    Where:

    274 N. Goodman St., Suite D103, Rochester, NY

    Ongoing: Thursdays at 6:00 pm -- A 10-week training for prospective foster and adoptive parents (Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting) meets every Thursday starting September 12, 2019, at 6:00 pm. These classes help prospective parents make an informed decision to pursue foster parenting or adoption. Each session lasts about 3 hours. Over the course of 10 sessions, families assess their parenting skills – their strengths and their needs, their desire and ability to work as partners, and their ability to meet the needs of children for safety, permanency and well-being. If you cannot attend starting the first week, YOU MAY JOIN THE CLASS ANY WEEK, and make up missed classes at the end. Call 585-232-5110 for details!
