Community Training: Know your Rights, Know Your Role
August 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition is hosting a Know your Rights, Know Your Role virtual training for foster parents and child welfare team members. This training can help CASA volunteers understand foster parent roles and rights as you work your cases. Also, share and encourage your foster parents to attend.
Understanding the foster care system can be challenging and overwhelming while foster parents are also providing care to children who’ve experienced trauma. Often parents are given incorrect or contradictory information, leaving them feeling unsupported and frustrated. This training will address common questions and situations for fostering families such as:
- Who to call when you can’t reach your worker
- Attending FST meetings and court hearings
- Accessing information for your child
- Visits and Supervision Policies
