Video: Building Your Foster Family Village, Part 1

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman July 31, 2015

Foster mother, Christy, talks of the importance of sharing stability, safety, consistency and love with foster children. For these children who have been touched on any scale by trauma in their lives their needs are greater than others. And so, creating a “village” to help raise your foster children will be invaluable to the success in the growth of the children.

We know how important a trainer is needed in preparation to foster – but next in line in creating your foster village is the licenser. This is essential to make sure you are in compliance with all regulations. Next, a good case worker is required to help in raising your foster children. A child therapist is also extremely helpful when it comes to making your home environment the best it can be for your kids.
