Babysitting Collaborative…NOW self paced in a virtual platform!

Did you know that 50% of foster families quit after just one year?
One of the top reasons they stop is that just don’t get a break when they need it. The strict state requirements for providing respite care (babysitting) for a foster child it has made the task of finding childcare nearly impossible for many foster families.

The South Texas Alliance for Orphans is determined to change this!

We have partnered with 12 local foster agencies to combine the multiple training steps and simplify the paperwork process into one self paced, asynchronous learning platform.  Certification that used to take weeks can now be completed in just one day or at your own pace.

* You must be 18 years of age to complete this training. * Total out-of-pocket costs for certification will be approx. $80 (Registration $15, FBI fingerprinting $40, CPR/1st Aide $30, TB Test free)

*CPR must be done every 2 years*

Your willingness to provide a night off for foster parents may very well be the reason they are able to keep serving children!
