We heard about the following resources we want to pass on to parents looking for adoption and foster care support:

Center for Adoption Support and Education has a Strengthening Your Family webinar series designed to help foster and adoptive families learn valuable skills to build strong families. You can register on-line for the 1 1/2 hour courses, which are $25, and take the course from any computer. The website has other resources for foster and adoptive families.

Seattle YMCA Young Adult Services supports foster teens (with or without mental health concerns) through transition from the system into being on their own. They help with housing, budgeting and plans for
further education. You can call (206) 749-7550 to talk with a Center staff member about their programs.

Please let us know about other resources you have found helpful and we will post them here.
