Resource (Foster)Parent Orientation

Title IV-E Trainings provided in partnership with Chabot-Los Positas Community College District 

We'll explain the process of becoming an approved Resource Parent: required documentation, pre-service trainings, and other responsibilities.

About this Event

This training provides an overview of the Resource Family Approval application process including: an introduction to Aldea, its history, the various Treatment Foster Care programs, as well as support services provided to all Resource Families. We will define what a Resource Parent is and go over the responsibilities that come with the role, as well as the five competency categories guiding a Resource Parent. We will explain the process of becoming an approved Resource Parent: the required documentation, pre-service trainings, submission of background checks via Live Scan, how to prepare your home for RFA approval, and review the purpose of the psychosocial assessment (home study interviews and report).
