Newly scheduled classes for the Kansas program licensing caregivers
interested in foster parenting called "TIPS-MAPP" 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.
You'll 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 each 10 week course is held.
