2 - Foster Care Orientation
Those interested in starting the process to become foster parents begin by attending an approximately one hour-long free foster care orientation. This is a required pre-requisite to becoming a licensed foster home, and it is in this session that you will be given much more detailed information about foster care.
Once the orientation is completed, families who are still seeking to serve as foster parents are registered for a free training course called Professional Parenting. Our organization provides this course, which is comprised of 24 hours of classroom training. The trainings are offered throughout Tampa Bay at different times and in weekend or evening sessions.
