Ever thought that maybe YOU can help with fostering kids?  Ascension’s social concerns is involved with “Care Portal” who works with area churches on the needs of foster kids and families in crisis. This training is for families interested in voluntarily hosting a child (for less than 72 hours) as an emergency, temporary housing placement.  This family will provide for all needs of the child (food, clothing (as needed), transportation), including child care thru the day and overnight until the child’s case plan is determined.  This training is led by professionals with expertise in foster care, juvenile intake & trauma informed care.  The training will equip each family to navigate the needs of caring for a child in this situation. This training requires background checks & a walk-thru of your home to qualify. April 20th and 27th (6-8 pm) Registration Form: Click here.  Contact Jean in the office for more info.
