Learning Resources

Helping Our Families be Informed & Prepared

The best foster and adoptive parents are those who are knowledgeable and the best agencies are the ones who give their
families tools, information, and direction to bolster and prepare them. Below are some resources you can access to help
you on your foster care or adoption journey. If something you're interested in learning isn't listed here, please click HERE
and let us know what questions you have.


Outside Training Opportunities

To receive training credit for a video, podcast, book read, etc. or to receive credit for an outside agency training that does not
provide a training certificate, individuals must complete the Training Response Form which can be downloaded HERE. Please
confirm with SACS staff that training meets topic and quality standards for credit before taking a training.

staff Angie Gillen and Nicole Hirschman. Each episode covers a topic relating to child
welfare and caring for children from hard places. You can hear Fostering Connections
