Respite (3 hours)  – Virtual 

Wednesday, March 6

Time: 6:00pm – 9:00pm

This purpose of this training is to provide professional respite services to our foster families. Respite is an important service offered to foster parents that helps connect children in care to safe, healthy relationships, and to give our foster homes a break. We cover an overview of the purpose of respite care, an overview of caring for children in care, the respite process, and requirements for homes providing respite care for the State of Missouri.

Upon completion of the course participants will complete a quiz and start the application process to become and in home respite provider which includes fingerprint background check and safety evaluation of your home.

This is an online class. You will receive an email with a Zoom link 24 hours prior to training from Foster Parent Training Specialist Kathy Haddock.  Make sure you have downloaded the zoom app onto your device and plan to sign in a few minutes early to work through any technical difficulties. 

NOTE: These trainings are currently offered to families specifically sponsored by KVC and Children’s Division. If your licensing worker comes from an agency other than KVC or Children’s Division, please contact your licensing worker and/or the organizer below to confirm billing details.
