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.

This training is offered by KVC at no cost to participants.The class will be offered at the KVC Olathe office, 21344 W 153rd St, Olathe, KS 66061.

The sessions will be as follows (each session includes a 30-minute lunch break):

  • March 19 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
  • March 26 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
  • April 2 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

  • May 14 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
  • May 21 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

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.
