    A 10-week training for prospective foster and adoptive parents meets every Thursday starting November 29 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. The classes teach the impact of foster and adoption on both the child and the family. These are not parenting classes, but they help families come up with ways to help kids cope with issues they might have.
