Training for foster and adoptive parents to begin June 13

Division of Child and Family Services is hosting training for foster and adoptive parents from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. June 13, 14 and 20 in the Valley View Room on the third floor of Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, 1600 Medical Parkway.

The training curriculum utilized is Parent Resources for Information, Development, and Education, or P.R.I.D.E., which consists of nine three-hour sessions designed to educate and equip applicants to provide foster and/or adoptive care to children in the child welfare system.

Foster and adoptive care needs arise when the safety and protection of a child is not met by their parents or caregiver. If relatives cannot be located for a child who needs out-of-home placement services, the Division of Child and Family Services helps by arranging foster care placement. The removal of a child from his or her natural environment is taken only as a last resort, as part of the overall continuum of services provided by DCFS.

Foster parents are required to attend a pre-service training prior to obtaining a license. A foster family must meet all minimum licensing standards as established by Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 424.

FBI background checks are conducted on all applicants and residents 18 years of age or older living in the home. After the initial license is issued, resource families must complete four hours of advanced training per year in order to keep the license current. Licenses are renewed annually to assure an acceptable level of care is maintained by the foster parents and an on-site visit to the home is made for each renewal license issued.

Lunch and snacks will be provided, courtesy of Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center.

For more information or to register for the training, call Lori Nichols at 888-423-2659, or go to http://www.dcfs.state.nv.us/.
