We hold regular info sessions for families and individuals interested in learning more about becoming a resource family. During the info session, you’ll learn how to become foster or adoptive parents, how the child welfare system works, and the amazing children you’ll be caring for if you decide to take this journey.

We’ll show you the important ways we’ll walk alongside you, supporting and encouraging you all along the way. Our families are never alone but are part of a caring team of folks who are dedicated to giving children their best chance at a bright future.

Info sessions are approximately 90 minutes long, are held over Zoom, and are no obligation. Please review the eligibility criteria below and if you meet the qualifications, we’d love for you to click the registration button and sign up for an upcoming session. We look forward to meeting you!
