Nazareth Child & Family Connection will offer foster parenting classes beginning Wednesday, March 4 and running for 10 weeks at its office at 165 Mahaley Ave. in Salisbury from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The free classes are designed to inform participants about the child welfare system, the role of foster parents and to help individuals develop the skills to become a successful foster/adoptive parent. The classes also focus on understanding trauma and how to better serve families who have experienced trauma. Individuals who complete the classes and the licensing process become licensed North Carolina foster parents.
For more information or to register for the classes, contact Shawn Squirewell, the director of foster care services at Nazareth Child & Family Connection at 888.207.0250, Ext. 111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
