Resource Family Training

Next Steps for Becoming a Resource Parent

Step 1, visit our events calendar to find out where the Foster VC Kids team will be hosting an information table or event to learn more about becoming a caregiver or watch our Informational Session online here. Step 2, you will attend Resource Family Orientation in person, or online here. Step 3, you will need to complete the required pre-service training to learn about regulations and requirements and the challenges and benefits of being a Resource Parent. Sign up for training here!

Our trauma-informed training provides an opportunity, through learning,  for you and Children & Family Services to assess together whether foster care or adoption is best for your family. You may withdraw from training at any time.

At any point in the process, the Foster VC Kids team is happy to answer any questions or discuss any concerns you may have. Please reach out to us at (805) 654-3220 or
