Ongoing education is a key aspect of being a foster parent. Below, you’ll find links to information to begin your foster parent journey including the state’s foster parent handbook, pre-placement training, and organizations that support foster parents throughout Wisconsin.
There’s also information on trauma and trauma-informed care. Understanding trauma is a key role of foster parenting. Many of our children are impacted by trauma, and trauma-informed care equips our staff and foster parents with tools to meet a child’s needs effectively. We hope you will take the time to learn more about this as well.
