About the course

Instructor

DCFS

The purpose of “A Journey Home” is to prepare potential foster parents for opening their home and providing a safe place for Louisiana’s children. The five sessions will help participants understand how to make informed decisions about fostering/adopting as well as navigating the foster care system. Participants will also learn how important their role is as a member of the Department of Children and Family Services professional foster care team.

The third session focuses on the importance of normalcy and cultural competence. As a foster parent, you play a role in helping children in their care live a normal childhood. You also play a role in helping children develop their racial and ethnic identity. This session will provide caregivers with strategies to achieve normalcy and assist children in forming their racial and ethnic identities.
