Event Details

Thank you for considering opening your heart and home to children in our community who are in need of a temporary family to care for them.

Join Heartland for Children for a 3-week Hybrid Foster Care Class to train to become a Foster Caregiver for children in our community. Classes can be completed on weeknights (Tuesday & Thursday at 6pm) or Saturdays (9am-3pm). You only need to attend ONE of the 3 week Sessions listed below, starting with the first class date.
