Classes June 23-28 compress training into six consecutive days

(TOLEDO, Ohio–May 14, 2014)—Families interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents have an opportunity to complete their training in six consecutive days in June.
Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) is offering the 36-hour training program June 23 through 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at LCCS’ offices, 705 Adams Street in downtown Toledo. The training is the first step in becoming licensed by the State of Ohio as a foster or adoptive caregiver.

Qualifying to be a foster or adoptive parent is easier than you think. You…
• Must be at least 18 years of age to adopt; 21 to become a foster parent
• Can be married, single or in a relationship
• Can own or rent a home with at least two bedrooms
• Can work outside the home
• Must have a source of income
• Need a safety inspection for your home
• Agree to a background check
• Receive free training
• Receive financial support, based on your child(ren)’s needs

LCCS currently needs foster parents for children of all ages, but has particular need for families able to care for groups of three or more siblings, and teens.
