Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

This training is for currently licensed Firefly foster families only. If you are not currently licensed with Firefly, but would like more information about becoming a foster parent, please visit foster.fireflyin.org.

You’re licensed! Before you get your first placement, let’s take some time to review some important policies that you’ll be expected to adhere to once you have a foster child in your home. While it’s expected that all newly licensed families will complete this course, we also welcome veteran families who may want a refresher (especially if it’s been a bit since your last placement). We’ll cover the following topics:

    • Confidentiality
    • Per diem and Personal Allowance
    • Emergencies & Crisis Management
    • Childcare Policies
    • Co-Care: What it is & how we incorporate it
    • Extracurricular Activities
    • In-Service Training Requirements
    • Medical Appointments and Documentation
    • Respite
    • Service Standards

This training will be facilitated via Microsoft Teams. Upon successful registration, you will receive an email confirmation with the link for the training. If you do not receive an email, please check your junk/spam folder. Please also be sure to add training@fireflyin.org to your list of trusted senders.

Foster parent training hours are available for this course.
