Pre-Service Training For Families

These training sessions are for applicants that have completed Steps #1 & #2 with Spirit of Faith Adoptions. 

Twelve (12) hours of Pre-Service Training must be completed in order to fulfill the state mandated Home Study Requirements for Ohio Foster to Adopt/Adoptive Applicants.

Each session will be (3) hours in length and presented live via Zoom. Foster parents will receive a stipend reimbursement of $10/person per hour to attend. 

These trainings can also count towards ongoing training hours for any Ohio licensed foster parent, so SOFA families can retake these training courses to count towards your (24) hours of ongoing foster parent training hours needed to review your foster care license.
