Kansas Foster and Adopt Parent Training Classes Posted Date:  01/13/15

The Kansas program for licensing caregivers interested in foster parenting called "TIPS-MAPP" begins January in many Saint Francis service areas across the state.

 These classes prepare you to make an informed decision about becoming a resource for children in foster care or our adoption program. They develop skills necessary to stabilize a kid who has seen challenging situations within their homes, possibly abuse and often neglect.

 Be a model to the parents of these children by showing effective parenting and discipline.
 Be a model of communication, self esteem, health, and well-being to children in the foster system so they know they can be successful emotionally, behaviorally, professionally- actually, in... every way.

MAPP classes are the first step to becoming a Saint Francis Community Services Foster Parent. Below is a list of dates on which the 1st of 10 week course is held. Must attend all classes. Call your worker for details and registration information - 866-999-1599
