Want to Foster or Adopt? Get Started with the Virtual Class

August 15, 2020 - September 26, 2020

The need for safe, loving foster homes is at an all-time high, and we’re excited to present a new option to begin your journey to becoming a foster or adoptive parent.

With the ability of virtual learning, we can offer you a one-on-one foster parent training class called Deciding Together (DT). This class pairs you with a professional who will provide you with all the trauma-informed information and education required from the state of KS to become a licensed foster home.

This format has all of the same information and education that’s contained in our TIPS-MAPP classes, but these are tailored to meet your needs in a more individualized setting in this time of social distancing and health precautions currently in place due to COVID-19.

This course will take 7 individual meetings. In each session, your DT leader will go over a book (sent electronically) to cover all content and provide group discussion and feedback. This can all be done virtually through online meetings in the comfort and safety of your own home. Internet access and phone and web-camera accessories will be required so that we can visually see both you and your home. If technology is a barrier for you, please let us know, and we can look at other training options.

The class schedule is as follows:

  • August 15, 9am-12pm
  • August 22, 9am-12pm
  • August 29, 9am-12pm
  • September 5, 9am-12pm
  • September 12, 9am-12pm
  • September 19, 9am-12pm
  • September 26, 9am-12pm

Participants MUST attend all sessions to complete the course. Two virtual home visits will be completed as well.

We here at KVC are excited to adapt in these current times and still meet the needs of children and teens in need. To enroll or discuss your options further, please email Kim Edwards at
