Resource Family Training

Next Steps for Becoming a Resource Parent

Step 1, attend an Informational Session in person, or online here, to gain a better understanding about foster care and the Resource Family Approval process. Step 2, you will attend a 3 hour Resource Family Orientation. 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.

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 fostervckids@ventura.org
