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 area agencies are determined to change this!

We have partnered with 11 excellent local foster agencies to streamline the multiple training steps and simplify the paperwork process. Certification that used to take weeks can now be completed in just one day!

Our community is helping make this event as inexpensive as possible. Communicare generously donates the TB test to anyone who needs it. Alex and Rachel with CPR2U reduce their costs and we cover another $10 to get the price down to $30!

Register today – spots are limited and we will likely sell out!

* You must be 18 years of age to complete this training.
* Total out-of-pocket costs for certification will be approx. $90 ($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.
