Would you or someone you know be interested in becoming a foster/adoptive parent in James City County? Social Services offers training that gives families the information they need to make an informed decision about whether fostering/adopting is the right choice for them.

Attend the Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education (PRIDE) pre-service training. The Commonwealth of Virginia requires completion of pre-service training as part of the application/approval process.

The training includes six weeknight sessions scheduled between Oct. 3 and Nov. 14 from 6-9 p.m. at the James City County Human Services Center. Topics covered include an overview of the child welfare system, the impact of abuse and neglect, connecting with birth families, behavior challenges and management and more.

Pre-registration is required, call 757-259-3120 or email claudette.blue@jamescitycountyva.gov.
