Support Groups are designed to assist resource parents with in-service training, community resource information, peer support, and communication with DHS. Attending on a regular basis is not only a great way to get the emotional and practical support you need to succeed, it’s a great way to stay on top of the training requirements you need to fulfill. Some groups serve dinner or snacks; all provide child care with your RSVP. Please contact the facilitator to find out about the topic or confirm your attendance.
We are excited to start back up with some in-person trainings and will be adding more throughout the year, if there are no current support groups in your area please consider our virtual options as these are available for all resource parents to attend.
