This is the training class required by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to be a licensed foster home in the Sate of Kansas. These classes are designed to prepare you to care for a child who may have experienced trauma and to provide you with many other supportive skills in your journey as a foster or adoptive parent. The class will also walk you through the further steps required to become a foster home.
