Make It Easy for Families to Take High-Value Training for Renewals

The Play

Offer a curriculum of the highest-value trainings, with childcare and meals taken care of, to make completing training hours prior to a renewal both simple for families and high-value for the agency.

Who Can Do This?: Anyone
Cost: Some Cost
Timeframe: 2-3 months
Difficulty: Medium

The Problem It Solves

Current foster families, overwhelmed with day to day responsibilities, often put off their training requirements until their renewal date is looming. In some systems, this means the only training available is reading books or watching movies, which does not maximally prepare caregivers for the needs of our children.

How To Do This

Outcomes Data
