People interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents can enroll in a free training series coming up in John Day. The Department of Human Services will host the eight-part Foundations to Foster and Adoption Training from 6-9 p.m. Wednesdays from Sept. 20 through Nov. 8 at the DHS office at 725 W. Main St. in John Day. The training is required for families to become foster parents or adoptive parents. The entire series is required within the first year that foster children are placed in the home. The training is interactive, including lectures, videos and activities. The training notebook and handouts are provided. The curriculum covers a range of topics designed to help foster parents care for children who have experienced significant trauma that led to them being placed in a foster home.
