Foster Parent Training

NTDC’s e-learning courses provide foster, adoptive and kinship caregivers with information and resources through the right training at just the right time. Whether you need information to respond to a child in crisis or adjust to new family dynamics, our courses are available to guide you.

These courses can be completed from your mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer at any time and place that is convenient for you.

In each interactive course, through videos and podcasts, you will hear from child welfare professionals, foster and adoptive parents, and young adults with lived expertise. You will complete interactive activities and quizzes that will help you apply what you hear and learn to your individual experience. Each course will also give you suggestions for additional resources you can use to enhance your ongoing exploration of this topic.

Once you complete a course, you will be able to download a certificate of completion. Be sure to save these certificates and provide a copy to your Caregiver Support Specialist if you need documentation for the training you complete.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the Philanthropy Hub link here.
