Foster & Kinship Care Education
El Dorado Community Resources
The El Dorado County "Foster Kinship Care Education Program" provides training, support, resources and referrals for foster, relative caregivers and others caring for children in out-of-home placements.
Our classes cover the mandated topics required by the "State of California Community Care Licensing".
We offer approximately two classes a month. Upon completion of the class each participant receives a certificate.
We offer health classes covering many issues related to foster care.
We offer certification in CPR & First Aid. Our CPR & First Aid classes are geared for foster /kinship care, therefore our classes include information related to licensing requirements, forms and health issues related to caring for foster children.
We have a foster parent resources lending library with many books, videos, magazines and forms related to foster / kinship care and child development in general.
We offer an Independent Living Skills Program for foster youth.
