Foster Parent Program

The MidSOUTH Foster Parent Program provides training to prospective foster parents and people interested in adopting children who are in DCFS custody. The Foster Parent Program is a 30 hour course provided in 3 hour sessions. The training is designed to help foster/adoptive parents understand the challenges and rewards of rearing abused or neglected children.

MidSOUTH publishes and distributes the Foster Pride newsletter to more than 1,000 foster families and child welfare workers each quarter.
