Resource Parent Support Groups

Joining a support group is essential to being the best Resource Parent you can be. You can often get the workshop training hours necessary to fulfill your licensing requirements while attending, and most importantly, you will be supported by professionals and like-minded Resource Parents in performing this crucial service. Resource Parent Support Groups are partially funded by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency.

Grupos de Apoyo Para Padres de Recursos en Espanol

Grupo de apoyo es esencial para ser el mejor padre de crianza puede ser. También puede conseguir a menudo las horas de formación taller necesarias para cumplir con sus requisitos de licencia mientras esté allí. Lo más importante de todo es que se puede apoyar en hacer un trabajo que es tan importante. Los talleres del Grupo de Apoyo de Padres de Recursos son patrocinados por el Programa de Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Care Education y parte por el Condado de San Diego.

COVID-19 Update

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
