The Alliance staff of trainers and specialists work with you to provide ongoing support once you accept a child into your home. During each three-year licensing period, all licensed foster care providers, relative caregivers and adoptive parents are required to complete ongoing training. Classes are offered on many subjects, such as mental health, child management and transitioning to independence.
Our class schedule is flexible, and we hold many programs in the evenings and on weekends to accommodate your busy schedule. All classes and support services are free of charge.
