Pre-Service Training

2022 Pre-Service Training Schedule Via Zoom

One of the first and also one of the most important steps foster and adoptive parents complete is Pre-Service training. Required by the State of Ohio, these classes are designed to educate you about the children available for adoption and to prepare you to parent them. This training is broken down into twelve modules covering different topics relevant to foster care and adoption, including support and services offered every step of the way. We are now offering them on-line to take from the comfort of your home.

Attendance at Pre-Service Training is a requirement for all foster and adoptive applicants. This will be offered virtually via zoom. You must be present for the entire class to receive credit.

What People Say

Testimonials

The Journey Home Foster Care program focuses on three key areas: Recruitment, Training, and Support.

Recruitment
We strive to find high-quality caregivers for the children we serve. The intended result of recruitment is to find a family who is motivated and committed to providing a safe and stable environment for a child. The knowledge and skills of the foster parents are critical to the well-being of the children in their care.
Training
Our training takes a comprehensive approach and requires families to complete pre-service training prior to being licensed as a foster or adoptive home. Families must also complete ongoing training hours to continue their education. Journey Home offers many opportunities for ongoing training and a variety of topics to meet the needs of the families and children that we serve.
Support
After a child is placed with a family, the goal is to provide unequaled support for the entire family. Our experienced and professional case managers are committed and available to the families. They also provide in-home services, identify community resources, and act as the liaison between the family and the CPS caseworker.
