Welcome to the Foster & Kinship Care Education Program
The Foster & Kinship Care Education Program provides quality education and support activities that is mandated by the State of California to the caregivers of children and youth in out-of-home care so that these providers may meet the medical, educational, emotional, behavioral and developmental needs of children and youth.
We value our caregivers in assisting them with their education, success, supporting environment, and receiving the best outcome from our program. In doing so, we provide our caregivers with certificates of completion after successfully participating in our various trainings.
Our program is designed with Foster and Kinship Care providers in mind, helping to bridge the gap between questions and answers.
All FKCE workshops are FREE and open to the community.
Why is FKCE important?
The number of children in California's foster care system has grown by more than 50% from 68,000 to 105,000. The dramatic increase in the state's foster care population has been attributed to many factors-there are a great number of children living in poverty, increasing numbers of parents who abuse alcohol and drugs and increasing cases of child abuse and neglect. The FKCE program plays a vital role in providing licensed foster parents and relative caregivers with the training and education that will help them in meeting the multifaceted and often complex needs of the foster children in their care.
