Please join the connect virtually by going onto the CHJC Website, www.chjc.org or in-person located at 808 West Broadway, Fulton, New York 13069. The session will begin at 6:00pm.

Foster Parent/Kinship training classes will begin virtually via Zoom on January 11, 2023, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, and continue for nine weeks thereafter.

The CHJC Therapeutic Foster Care Program provides temporary care for children unable to live with their birth families or guardians. The Foster Care Program allows children who may have been abused or neglected and/or have behavioral challenges and special needs, the opportunity to live in a family setting, attend public school and be an active member of the community. To provide support for the needs of the entire family, in addition to 24-hour on-call services and crisis response, extensive training is offered to all Foster Parents/Kinship Caregivers. Foster Parents/Kinship Caregivers work as members of a treatment team alongside families, social workers, and other professionals to help prepare a child to return to his/her birth family. Positive adult alliances, communication, and teamwork are critical to the healthy development of children and their long-term success. Through direct guidance and support, you as a Foster Parent or Kinship Caregiver will act as a role model and mentor toward the family reunification process.

For more information about the informational or training sessions, or on opening your home and heart to these deserving children, please contact Karli Kukula, Recruitment and Training Specialist, at (315) 955-9861 or e-mail: kkukula@chjc.org.
