FOSTER CARE CLASS
Saint Francis Community Services, a faith-based child and family community service provider, is offering a 10-week course on foster parenting starting Sept. 21, 2015, at 6 p.m., at 222 Southwind Place in Manhattan. The course, "Trauma Informed Partnering for Safety and Permanence-Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting" (TIPS-MAPP), is designed to help people make informed decisions about becoming a resource family for children in foster care or adoption programs. The State of Kansas requires that all potential foster parents complete TIPS-MAPP training. At least 21 Riley County foster children must stay in homes outside the county because there are not enough local families to accommodate them. These children urgently need about 12 new foster families to help house them closer to home. The TIPS-MAPP course provides information and skill development for prospective foster parents and helps them gain a better understanding of the needs of children in foster care. Course participants also learn about resources for foster parents, parenting techniques, and available support services. Anyone interested in registering for the class or learning more about becoming a foster parent can go online to http://www.fostercare-ks.org or to call 866-999-1599.
