Zoom Training Session – Foster Parents and the Courts- October 18th at 7 PM

October 7, 2021

Hello all!

The Office of Client Advocacy Foster Care Ombudsman program is happy to announce that we will be offering an encore presentation of our “Foster Parents and the Courts” training program via Zoom on October 18th, 2021 at 7 pm. If you were not able to attend the session in June, this will be an excellent opportunity for you to increase your understanding of the courts. We will be going over an outline of how a child welfare case proceeds through the system, reviewing some dos and don’ts for attending hearings, and discussing some frequently asked questions. As always, an hour of training credit will be available for foster parents who come to the session.

If you are interested in attending, please go to Foster Parents and the Courts Registration Form and complete the online form. An email with a Zoom link will be sent to you shortly thereafter. If you have any problems with the form or with receiving the Zoom link, please contact Foster Care Ombudsman Dawn Leemon ( or Programs Field Representative Stephanie Miller (
