We will help meet your training needs for Resource Parents
FACES also provides training at the regional level.
FACES works with CRAFFT. local agencies, and private agencies to meet the training needs of resource families throughout Virginia. These training events also help to open doors for established groups to reach out to their members and to help develop local support groups so families can develop a local support network.
Additional avenues of training will be coming as FACES explores online and teleconferencing modes of learning.
Fostering Families Magazine
Fostering Families is a magazine about you---the parents, children and dedicated professionals in the child welfare system providing foster care and domestic adoption to children, where both sides of an issue are explored and debated and questions are raised and discussed on matters that contribute to the nurturing and well-being of the children entrusted to your care. An important contribution to the magazine are your own stories---of excitement, frustration, hope, sadness, joy---which serve to illustrate on a personal level the larger issues that characterize a system that is often slow to respond and under fire.
Grandsplace is an online support system for grandparents and others parenting relative children which includes state by state support groups, valuable census data, grandparents bill of rights and numerous resources for kinship families.
