The road to becoming a certified foster parent with Tabor begins with completing our general pre-service training class series. Our training classes are generally six weeks long, with one class per week.
Topics covered during the training sessions are:
- Overview on children from the system
- Child Abuse Prevention
- Fire Safety
- Health and Wellness and more!
During the pre-service training process, candidates must apply for required clearances:
FBI, Child Abuse and State Criminal Record. Additional documents will be collected during this process to allow us to get to know each candidate and his/her background for screening purposes.
Tabor is one of Philadelphia’s premier Treatment Foster Care agencies offering treatment level training. In addition to the General Pre-Service training listed above we offer advanced training classes for treatment level children once the general training classes are completed.
Once you complete the Pre-service training classes you may be eligible to move on to the Home Study portion of the certification, where a Tabor designee would come to your home to inspect and assure it is fit for a foster child placement.
