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 has made the task of finding childcare nearly impossible for many foster families.

The South Texas Alliance for Orphans and 11 collaborating agencies are determined to change this!

At this event, we have collaborated with 11 local foster agencies to combine the multiple training steps and simplify the paperwork process. Certification that used to take weeks can now be completed in just one day! We have even partnered with local companies for free and discounted services.

Be the first to receive the link to sign up when it goes live at the end of March by signing up for the wait list.

* You must be 18 years of age to complete this training.
* Total out-of-pocket costs for certification will be approx. $80 ($45 FBI fingerprinting, $30 CPR, and $15 event registration).

You can be an integral part of keeping children in foster care in a secure and loving home. By giving their foster parents the breaks they need, they’ll be able to refresh, refocus, and re-enter the mission field of loving our city’s most vulnerable kids.

Participating agencies: 4KIDS of South Texas, Arrow, A World for Children, Boysville, Children’s Shelter, Depelchin, Families Especial, Kids at the Crossroads, Pathways Youth and Family Services, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, and TruLight127 Ministries.
