Looking for a way to serve foster children and their families? This is it!
Trauma-Informed Babysitter Training
March 7th from 9am-4pm at First Colleyville
Finding a verified, trustworthy babysitter is one of the most critical parts of a foster family’s support system. The process to become verified is a bit tedious, but we promise it’ll be worth it!
We are looking for responsible adults and teens (16 and older) who are willing to learn new skills in order to meet the needs of this unique population of kids.
You will need to already have a connection to at least one foster family in order to participate. Once verified, you can connect with agencies who can help you find additional families to babysit for.
Babysitters will be required to complete an application, background checks, and fingerprinting in order to ensure the safety of children in foster care. In addition, babysitters will complete a one day training that will cover transportation & medication, CPR/First Aid, and behavior strategies to help you care for the kids.
Participating organizations are:
ACH Family Services
Arrow Child and Family Ministries
A World For Children
CK Family Services
Kids First Inc.
MCH Family Outreach
Safe Families for Children
Texas Baptist Home for Children
