New dates added - Oklahoma Bridge Family Training Posted Date:  01/18/15

#Oklahoma Dept. of Human Services' pre-service resource parent training, Guiding Principles for Oklahoma Bridge Resource Families teaches foster and adoptive parents to understand how to work with the child’s birth family towards the goal of reunification; and, if reunification fails, Bridge is committed to raising/parenting the child.

This approach views foster care as a service provided to the child’s entire family. The resource families will meet both foster and adoptive program criteria; come from the same community as the child; and be willing to accept and agree to visitation and other types of contact with siblings, extended family and other important people in the child’s life.
