Video: Foster Care Training Experience

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman July 19, 2015

Ray Deck shares his first impressions about the training he and his wife received while preparing to become foster parents in Washington State. The Decks are going beyond simply providing a home for foster children–they are trying to do more with the Skookum Kids House.  As they prepare to open, they are in need of volunteer help as well as financial donations.  You can read more about the good that will come from the Skookum Kids House here.

For those wondering what foster care training is really like, Ray shares an honest, open view.  And, surprising to him, it’s a pretty good training system in the state of Washington!
