Foster Care Certification in Kansas
By on March 29th, 2011

Everyday HeroesKansas has become a national leader in child welfare outcomes. One organization fostering this success in Kaw Valley Center, or KVC’s Behavioral HealthCare. They offer a free series of classes called “Partnering for Safety and Permanence Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting”, known as PS-MAPP. The course is required by the state of Kansas before an adult can be chosen as a foster or adoptive parent.

The idea is to have families and their homes certified, so when children in the same area need foster or adoptive care, they can be placed without disrupting their social environment. Children remaining in the same school, with the same friends, have less trauma and lead happier, more productive lives.

The PS-MAPP course is 10 – 3 hour classes, lead by a certified team of professional staff and experienced resource parents. Other qualifications for foster or adoptive parents include background checks and meeting employment and income requirements.

For more information about how to become a foster or adoptive parent, visit the Kaw Valley Center’s website – kvc.org   Or call KVC Behavioral HealthCare – 888-655-5500.
