To meet the needs of our foster, adoptive and kinship families, we offer pre-service and in-service training for our families. Additionally, each year FosterAdopt Connect provides one or more professional in-service workshops designed to bring promising practice information to child welfare workers and therapists.
All Missouri foster families must obtain a minimum of 30 hours of in-service training on topics pertinent to their fostering experience every two years. FosterAdopt Connect offers open training opportunities, available to all Missouri foster,adoptive or kinship families, throughout the year. Our classes provide an average of two hours of approved in-service training per session.
