Your next step is to enroll in the no-cost Quality Parenting Training. The training is designed to:

  • Help families make informed decisions about fostering/adopting;
  • Help families understand their important roles and commitments as a member of the foster care/adoption team; and
  • Prepare families to navigate the foster care/adoption system.

The classes are typically three hours and are held one night a week for seven weeks. All classes are held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. For those interested in adopting, the Online Orientation must be completed before attending classes. Click here to complete the online orientation.

For those interested in becoming a foster parent, an in person Orientation must be attended prior to registering for class.  These are held weekly on Wednesday at noon at 700 W. 23rd St. Building H Panama City, FL.
