Foster Parent Training

  • Ebenezer Christian Children's Home 1006 Byrd Ridge Road North Wilkesboro, NC, 28659 United States (map)

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 September 11th at Ebenezer Christian Children's Home. Classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. 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 participant 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  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 online, please call our office or email Heather Cain at to set up a time for an interview. Informational interviews will be taking place August 29th. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to call our office at 336-667-5683.
