Going the Extra Mile
In Utah, each kinship family is required to participate in standardized training before becoming a licensed foster home. This is called “pre-service training” and comes in two parts: online video training—which is required—and classroom training—which is strongly encouraged.
During training, you’ll be introduced to skills that will help smooth the rough patches and speed the healing of a child in crisis—not to mention family ties and friendships.
