Relative, Adoptive, Foster Parent Trainings (RAFT)

RAFT (relative, adoptive, foster parent training) consists of 32 hours of skill-building through group activities, personal reflection, lecture, and discussion. It is designed to help families build rapport with one another, and to establish connections and resources. At the end of your training, you will have a deeper understanding of how to care for children that have undergone trauma and how to meet their needs. All household members over the age of 17 must attend and complete the training. Each training session consists of a block of four mandatory training dates held on Saturdays at locations throughout the state. It is imperative that once you start the training session, you complete all four days in order. Please note that child care is not provided. (Also, please note that several locations are now implementing a blended RAFT training that consists of two three-hour sessions of face-to-face training along with 12 hours of online training. Those locations utilizing this format are noted below.)
