What’s the first step to becoming a foster parent? Starting training! We provide all the training needed to become licensed foster parents, as well as the required advanced training.
Where to start?
If you’re new to foster care, sign up for an Encounter.
Our two-hour information session will introduce you to the need for and the ways to be involved with Christian foster care. This is where everyone starts the journey of becoming foster or respite parents. Sign up for an event near you today!
Already attended an Encounter? Sign up for Foundations.
This multi-day training is for foster and respite families and meets the state-mandated requirement. If you are going through the process to become a FaithBridge foster or respite family, this training is for you AFTER you have attended an Encounter.
3. Advanced Foster Parent Training
Already a FaithBridge licensed foster or respite parent and need more training? Go to our online training site, FaithBridgeU. (First-time users or newly licensed, please check your email for your log in information).
Advanced training hours are required by the state for all foster and respite families. We offer and promote several courses each month. Please note that advanced parent trainings are limited to current FaithBridge foster and respite parents only.
