D.C.F.S.Foster/Adopt PRIDE Training at Willow Creek

Are you interested in investing in the life of a child by becoming licensed to be a D.C.F.S. foster parent?

The DCFS Pre-Service training program Foster/Adopt PRIDE will be offered at Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, IL. The sessions will start on May 3rd and will run nine consecutive Thursday evenings from 6:30p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The 27 hours of training is based on a co-trainer model of a foster parent and agency social work staff member. If you are interested in registering for this class, you must have an agency refer you for the training.

Joyce Moffit, a member of our leadership team, foster care recruiter for Youth Services Bureau of Illinois Valley (YSB) and a DCFS master trainer, will be one of the trainers for this session. Foster families who have successfully completed this training program will be well prepared to meet the needs of the foster children in their care.

For more information, please call Joyce Moffit at YSB  #847-468-0454. Additional training opportunities can be viewed at the DCFS web site, http://www.state.il.us/DCFS/library/com_communications_train.shtml
