Want to Foster or Adopt? Start With This Free Class in Pittsburg

August 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - October 9, 2023 @ 9:00 pm

foster parent training classes

More than 6,000 Kansas children and teens need foster families to open their hearts and homes. It only takes ONE caring adult to change a child’s life. How about you?

One of the first and most important steps to become a licensed foster or adoptive parent is to complete TIPS-MAPP training (Trauma-Informed Partnering for Safety and Permanence – Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting). This class prepares you to care for a child who has experienced trauma and helps you build many other skills in your journey to become a foster or adoptive parent. TIPS-MAPP also aids you in determining if fostering or adopting is right for you.

KVC Kansas offers this course at no cost to you. Classes will be held in-person in Pittsburg from 6-9pm every Monday. Class starts August 7, 2023 and ends October 9, 2023. Class size is limited so sign up today!

Enrollment and trainings can fill quickly so please reach out soon if interested. If this option does not work for your family but you are interested, please reach out as we have new classes forming all the time!

If you’re considering becoming a foster parent and want to sign up for class, fill out this form.

If you have additional questions, you can contact Jesi Kendall, KVC’s Foster Parent Recruiter, at
