Become a Foster Parent


Schedule for upcoming foster parent training classes

NewsChannel 13 coverage of the need for foster parents in Warren County

You can attend our next GPSII/MAPP class to learn how to help Warren County families and become a certified foster parent!

We would like to invite you to attend our upcoming Group Preparation and Selection/Model Approach to Partnership in Parenting (GPSII/MAPP) classes to become a certified foster, adoptive and/or kinship parent through Warren County Department of Social Services.

Please be advised that you must attend all classes in order to participate in the program. If you have a planned conflict and would still like to attend, please contact us to see if the missed information can be made up. In addition to these dates, we schedule two separate home visits to provide more information, review information from the classes and to conduct a GPSII/MAPP home study.
