Adoption Preparation Classes

These classes focus on certain aspects of adoption issues, but most of them are also appropriate to use for ongoing training for all foster parents. You are welcome to take any of them by registering at the 800# where you will receive information about locations. Be aware that some are very specific such as the infertility class which is for parents experiencing infertility issues and the kinship class which is for those people planning to adopt a relative’s child.

Clases de Preparacion para Adopcion

Estas clases se enfocan en ciertos aspectos de cuestiones de adopción, pero la mayoría de ellas también califican para cumplir con las horas de entrenamiento requeridas para todos los padres de crianza. Usted es bienvenido a tomar cualquiera de ellas, registrándose en el #800 donde recibirá información sobre las ubicaciones. Tenga en cuenta que algunas clases son muy específicas como la clase de infertilidad que es para los padres que están experimentando problemas de infertilidad y la clase de parentesco que es para aquellas personas que planean adoptar a un niño de un pariente.

COVID-19 Update

Grossmont College
Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Care Education Program

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

An update to the Order of the San Diego Public Health Officer effective June 19, 2020 continues to prohibit public or private gatherings unless otherwise specified in the Health Order. Based on this information, FAKCE will continue to only offer online Zoom classes for all of our classes and Resource Parent support groups. When the Public Health Order changes to allow in person classes, we will provide an update to our class schedule at that time. Hope you and your family and the children you care for are staying healthy and safe.

Sincerely, FAKCE Administration
