Become a Foster or Adoptive Parent in Two Weekends – Topeka

November 9, 2019 - November 10, 2019

One of the first and most important steps to becoming a licensed foster or adoptive parent is to complete TIPS-MAPP classes (Trauma Informed Partnering for Safety and Permanence – Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting). These classes are designed to prepare you to care for a child who may have experienced trauma and to provide you with many other supportive skills in your journey as a foster or adoptive parent.

The next classes are scheduled to begin on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The training is offered by KVC at no cost to participants.The class will be offered at the Topeka KVC office at 419 SW 29th St, Topeka, KS.

The sessions will be as follows:

  • October 26   9:00 AM – 6:00 PM             30 minute lunch break
  • October 27  9:00 AM – 3:00 PM             30 minute lunch break
  • November 9   9:00 AM – 6:00 PM             30 minute lunch break
  • November 10   9:00 AM – 3:00 PM             30 minute lunch break

These classes are mandatory and must be completed before you may be considered for placement of children through foster care or adoption. Both parents must attend if there are two parents involved. Any person 18 years or older who lives in the home and shares parenting responsibilities must be MAPP trained. It is necessary to attend all sessions in order to complete the course.

If you have questions or wish to enroll, please contact Danielle Cloyd at 785-207-8309 or dcloyd@kvc.org. Hope to see you there!
