Typically, the Newcomer Series (Support Group 101, Resilience and Coping Skills, and Seven Secrets of Successful Foster Parenting) are completed during Newcomer Support Group, however, due to COVID-19 these trainings are take-home trainings and Support Group is a one hour virtual meeting.
Register for your Newcomer Support Group on the Newcomer Foster Parent Facebook Group. (DEN and SLV families, Newcomer group is in addition to your regional group. You’ll attend Newcomer as well for the first three months so that you can meet other foster parents all over Colorado.)
Please complete these trainings in order, at the rate of one per month, unless otherwise assigned.
This Safety Series is a three-part series. Read through each of the sections below and complete a quiz for each. Once completed, your Home Supervisor will review the quizzes and this content with you at a home visit. After this review is complete, they will generate a certificate that is worth three hours of ongoing training credit.
Complete these trainings at your own pace. They can be completed any time in your first three months post-licensure, however, you cannot graduate until all three are completed.
