Have you ever felt God may be calling you to become a foster parent? Encourage holds foster parent prep courses (formerly called pre-service training sessions) multiple times a year with a focus on Trust-based Relational Intervention (also known as TBRI).

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are currently planning our foster parent prep courses with safety precautions in place in order to hold our trainings in person.

There is a great need for families to say yes to opening their homes to children in need. If you are looking to foster or foster to adopt and have a heart for sibling groups, teens or children with medical needs than our agency would be a wonderful fit for you. These youth are our greatest priority.

Encourage Foster Care agency provides a 24-hour trauma-focused training to become licensed foster parents during two power weekends. We have two trainings scheduled for early 2022. Register through the links below or contact Heather Huebner at 330.462.1118 or huebnerh@ccho.org.
