Virtual Foster Orientation

Your next step in our foster process is to schedule your virtual Foster Orientation. At the Foster Orientation you'll learn more about the foster selection, pick-up and drop-off process while learning key care tips regarding health and behavior. We are going to be holding these sessions online via Zoom. We will email you with instructions before the orientation. Thank you.
