Fall 2017 Foster and Adoptive Parent Training

Would you or someone you know be interested in becoming a foster/adoptive parent in James City County? Social Services offers training that gives families the information they need to make an informed decision about whether fostering/adopting is the right choice for them.

The training includes five weeknight sessions scheduled between Oct. 4 and Nov. 1 at the James City County Human Services Center, 5249 Olde Towne Road. In addition to the classroom training, parents will be required to complete a series of online clusters. Interested persons are encouraged to attend the orientation session on Sept. 20, 6-7:30 p.m., also at the James City County Human Services Center.

Training topics covered include an overview of the child welfare system, the impact of abuse and neglect, connecting with birth families, behavior challenges and management and more. For more information or to register, call 757-259-3120.
