We are excited to announce our upcoming classes for Foster Care and Adoption services. One of the state requirements to become a licensed foster home is TIPS-MAPP (Trauma Informed Partnering for Safety & Permanence-Model Approach to Partnership in Parenting) classes. This is a 30 hour class. If you are only interested in adoption most counties we currently serve require that you take this class as well.
We have scheduled MAPP to begin on Tuesday, April 10th. The classes will be held at Tabernacle Baptist Church in the Fellowship Hall located at 3929 Johnson Street High Point, NC 27265. Classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:00pm to 9:00pm beginning April 10th. We will be providing a meal before each night of the training since most of you will be coming from work. If you are married, it is required that both spouses attend the class sessions.
One of our requirements is that each participate complete an online training and print out a confirmation certificate prior to TIPS-MAPP class starting. This process should be less than 20 minutes. You can access this video at www.ncswlearn.org and click on Foster Parent Orientation. Husbands and wives may watch the video together, but each will need to print a confirmation page. Please bring the confirmation page to the first night of class.
Once you have completed your application and completed the Foster Parent Orientation on line, please call our office to set up a time for an interview. Interviews will be done on Wednesday, March 28th from 8:30am to 5:30pm. If this date will not work for you, please let us know and we will try and work out another date for your interview.
Please e-mail Kyla Kerr at firstname.lastname@example.org or Heather Cain at email@example.com to reserve your spot for the class. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to call our office at 336-667-5683.
